I'm very proud that my article entitled "Optimizing Security Operations for the Big Data Crush" is the feature article in the August ISSA Journal: https://c.ymcdn.com/sites/www.issa.org/resource/resmgr/JournalPDFs/feature0814.pdf. In the article, I identify factors that, based on my experience, create operational inefficiencies in a security operations setting. I also offer suggestions for how some of these inefficiencies can be made less inefficient. My intent was to cover a wide variety of topics within the security operations realm, while staying within the length limitations, so as to provide value to a wide readership. I hope you will find the article both informative and interesting.
