ABOUT THE TOPIC:
What is Big Data and where does it fit into my risk landscape? Although Big Data has been around for many years, the convergence of low cost technology, large datasets, and the demand for more accurate, timely, and actionable information has created the tidal wave of new approaches to data analysis. With the evolving technology, business demands, and the storage of so much data, comes the question of at what cost and at what risk?
In this session, participants will:
· Explore the history of Big Data.
· Walk through case studies of successful Big Data projects.
· Review the technology behind Big Data.
· Learn when and how the internal audit function should be involved in Big Data in terms of governance and privacy.
