When dealing with "Big Data," the volume and types of data about IT and the business are too great to process in an ad hoc manner. Moreover, it has become increasingly difficult to secure meaningful information from the data being collected.

This brief examines:
- Escalating complexity of the security management environment
- Comprehending more conclusions from big data already collected
- Combining infrastructure, analytic tools and threat intelligence to gain value of big data
