However, many cybersecurity experts and big tech are convinced that Moore’s Law may no longer be as indestructible as it once was, referencing the explosive growth of Big Data as a primary reason. Over the last two years, 90% of the world’s data has been produced, yet companies only analyze 12% of it. This missed opportunity to fully leverage the power of data analytics represents the enormous disconnect between the vast ocean of data and the organizational struggles to successfully harness it.Read more...
