Our #CIOchat yesterday argued the merits of #BigData and how much traction it is getting. No one doubted its importance, but a few went back to square one by asking for a crisper definition of the term. Therein lies part of the problem: there's no universal definition for #Big Data (to me, it's analytics that looks at more data).

To achieve this, supply chain and operations must be able to measure against performance goals and gain a level of visibility into supply chain integrity that ensures counterfeit goods aren’t being sold on the black market or funneled into gray markets.

The results of the fifth annual Cost of Cyber Crime study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute shows just how much cybercrime has spread from 2013 to 2014.
