use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt

regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
