Re: Good.
That may also backfire, take a look at this scenario: "if we are going to get hack regardless what we do, what is the point, let's wait and see and we can take it from there"

Re: what would happen...
If does not matter if you are a big data environment or not, data needs to be secured period. The big data itself is not the main issue.

Re: what would happen...
I hear you but I do not want to see data as liability. There is a value in every piece of data we hold, it is up to us how we can put into action to drive the business.

Some wants to be hacked
Some companies are actually looking forward to be hacked. It is a good deal for most small startups which want to make names, thanks to us and media and no consequence of being hacked in any way. SnapChat would not be a SnapChat if it was not hacked, they were hacked and they increased their user base.

Time to start acting
2014 was the year when the hacker side took the lead in the ongoing cyber war. New technologies and new methods are being developed on an industrial scale.

2015 must be the year when the good side wakes up and starts to do something about it. Peripheral security is not enough anymore.

We need to securely authenticate the users instead of using simple passwords, we need to protect and authenticate the data in transit, and we need to build security in the applications, not just trust the network to handle it.

Good.
This is good news.  Top security experts advise that these days, it's not so much a matter of if you get hacked, but when.  Taking the approach of "something is going to happen" will help cut down on so-called "M&M security" (i.e., hard on the outside, soft on the inside), allowing enterprises to be better prepared and secured when a breach occurs.

Re: what would happen...
Im not opposed. Especially if we fail to incorporate more effective cataloging and safeguarding procedures of big data sets.

...if we started referring to Big Data as "Big Liability."
