  • What You Should Do to Prevent Data ExfiltrationFortunately, many organizations have learned two immutable truths about data exfiltration. First, as threats multiply and expand, taking no action or incomplete action is a sure step toward disaster. Second, there are new and better solutions that help organizations move beyond simply providing visibility into threats and inappropriate data movement to actually preventing vital content from leaving the organization with-out authorization.Some of the key initial steps simply involve stepped-up education and coaching for end users, many of whom may have lapsed into bad practices that promote data breaches. Part of the goal for this end-user education and training is to highlight where risks may be lurking and to spotlight the business impact of breaches that lead to data exfiltration. These coaching sessions should identify and rectify risky behavior, without impacting the ability to conduct business in an agile, flexible manner. Here’s a typical use case where stepped-up end-user coaching can help:Users who want to work offline often download sensitive documents onto risky sources, like a thumb drive or a public cloud file-sync-and-share service. Obviously, moving sensitive content outside the security framework of the enterprise network dramatically increases the risk of data exfiltration, so us-ers need to be made aware that something they are doing may be increasing organizational exposure. Perhaps a small pop-up window might appear with a warning that such a download is a violation of company policy, and it could give them several options for alternate, safer actions. Initially, they may have the option to override the policy, but in doing so, a notification could be sent to their manager to let them know this is happening. If the company insists it is unnecessarily risky, they could block the user from that download. Or, if they want to find a way to support the user’s need for a less-stringent policy that supports their business task, the policy may be properly altered without increasing organi-zational risk.In addition to greater collaboration between business and security professionals on policy development and management, organizations should look for modernized security tools and services that help promote the blocking of unauthorized content movement without impacting the business.Organizations should look for tools that can properly protect against data exfiltration, while also address-ing the full range of threats identified by the CSA in its Treacherous Twelve list. Among the capabilities you should look for in a solution are:•Inventory and indexing of content through automatic scanning of all available resources, fromtraditional PC endpoints to mobile devices, RFID-enabled sensors and point-of-sale terminals•Content violation discovery, signature generation and alert notifications when sensitive data is determined to be improperly in motion•DLP monitoring and scanning that provides real-time analysis of content vulnerability•Detailed forensics that aligns current and past events, detects trends and identifies threats before they take hold•Summaries of security incidents and related remediation through customized views and incident reports•Policy enforcement that acts as a force multiplier for in-house and outsourced resources, while also supporting necessary changes

  • Telephone service, cable television, internet services and wireless are all being provided as an integrated telecom solution and at present, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) estimates approximately 6.9 billion wireless service subscriptions worldwide as of mid – 2014.
  • The revenue model of Telecom sector has seen a marked shift from the traditional voice and messaging driven model to a data driven model.

      

    This churn in the industry has given rise to an enormous amount of data which has never been seen before. Around the globe, hundreds of thousands of phone calls take place simultaneously, which need to be accurately tracked by the second and the report has to be made available to the customers in the form of an itemized bill.

  • Big telecom companies have a number of verticals such as Marketing, Product, Sales, Human Resources, Information Technology, Research and Development, etc. that are in constant need of information. Using Hadoop, the existing databases can be suitably mined and information can be extracted which would eventually be fed to the respective verticals for decision making.

  • Telecom companies already have excellent use cases for big data: offloading the strain of ETL to Hadoop while maintaining complex billing on enterprise warehouses; using anomaly detection on data to and from cell towers to discover and quickly respond to sudden usage shifts, and employing real time analytics to respond quickly users after a dropped call in order to improve experience and reduce churn.

       

  • CellOS will use the unique enterprise-grade features in the MapR Platform, such as its NoSQL database MapR-DB, with the schema-free analytics capabilities in Drill and the real-time streaming of Spark. CellOS will also deploy the Zoomdata stack to provide visual analysis of big datasets in seconds

  • Telcos can benefit from big data analytics by gaining a deeper understanding of switching, frequency utilization, and capacity use for capacity planning and management. Analyzing consumption of services and bandwidth in specific regions helps with planning locations for infrastructure investment. Capturing and analyzing data produced by the infrastructure and by sensors can accelerate troubleshooting information about the network. The MapR Converged Data Platform can efficiently collect and store huge volumes of sensor data and scale as data grows.
  • Accurate diagnosis of customer churn and enabling of alerts when a customer exhibits behavior that suggests imminent defection is a critical requirement for telcos. By looking at multiple factors, such as comments on social media and declining usage, along with historical data that show patterns of behavior that suggest churn, companies can predict when a customer is at risk of defecting. The MapR Converged Data Platform helps bring together customer transaction data and communication streams from customers in real-time that can show how customers feel about their service. This is critical for detecting and addressing customer satisfaction issues in real time.

       

  • The MapR Converged Data Platform can enable building of predictive models that can flag anomalous phone calls that might indicate theft or hacking, both in business-to-business and business-to-consumer environments.

  • Employees should feel a sense of ownership and personal satisfaction around having good information security, not just see security as policies they must obey. Security programs must also foster more employee satisfaction and better performance. If employees don't feel like the security team cares about them, or gives them the tools they need to perform their jobs securely and effectively, then how are they supposed to feel the sense of ownership for security that is necessary for a strong security culture?

  • To do this, you should hold a meeting every time you update your policy.
