‘Big Data in Cyber Security’ Conference on 10th of May at Edinburgh Napier University

Posted: 13th April 2016

Get leading insights into two of the biggest growth areas in technology and how they come together at Edinburgh Napier University free ‘Big Data in Cyber Security’ conference on 10th May. Our event brings together industry, law enforcement and academia to share opportunities and challenges around cyber security. Confirmed speakers include the FBI, Police Scotland, RSA and our event partners from Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

The world is moving towards Big Data, with Cyber Security and the tracking of network events one of its leading applications. Threats to organisations increase by the day, and many have responded by moving towards the integration of SIEM (Secure Incident and Event Management) to detect malicious activity.


Our conference brings together industry, academia and law enforcement to share insights, ideas, expertise and resources in responding to current security challenges, and in particular to look at the opportunities and challenges in managing and using big data in a cyber security context.

This event is hosted by The Cyber Academy, in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and will investigate best practice in industry and look to future Big Data infrastructures for the benefit of organisations in monitoring security events, and in automated generation of audit information and business analytics.
