Profit and ideology are the two biggest motivations driving cyber attacks against Web applications – with all business types and governments as potential targets. The best way to combat attacks of this nature through awareness and analysis of Web application security threats.

During this webinar, Ryan C. Barnett, senior security researcher for Trustwave SpiderLabs and leader of the Web Application Security Consortium's (WASC) Web Hacking Incidents Database (WHID), will:

•Review current attack trends and stats
•Highlight analysis from the WHID and honeypot data
•Identify top Web application security practices

This event is ideal for businesses that have Web applications and need to protect the data flowing through those applications.

  • Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?

    No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.

    A VentureBeat webinar helps marketers wade through the tech-speak and discover how to:

    • Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics
    • Winnow down your options to a handful of appropriate platforms
    • Come up with ways to measure success
    • Generate meaningful business insight from data
    • Plan for the future by the ability to add new data sources and tools

    Speakers:
    * Jon Cifuentes, Analyst, VB Insight
    * Ken Davis, CEO, TaskEasy
    * Ware Sykes, CEO, Nowait
    * Mike Osborn, CMO, Upstart
    * Wendy Schuchart, moderator, VentureBeat


    No analysis needed for this decision. Register today!

    This webinar will be based on the results of Jon Cifuentes' VB Insight Marketing Analytics report.

From sales and customer service, to finance and operations, implementing ThoughtSpot has saved 600 hours a month and generated an increase in revenue and customer satisfaction.
  • Denny Lee, Technology Evangelist with Databricks, will provide a jump start into Apache Spark and Databricks. Spark is a fast, easy to use, and unified engine that allows you to solve many Data Sciences and Big Data (and many not-so-Big Data) scenarios easily. Spark comes packaged with higher-level libraries, including support for SQL queries, streaming data, machine learning, and graph processing. We will leverage Databricks to quickly and easily demonstrate, visualize, and debug our code samples; the notebooks will be available for you to download.

    This introductory level jump start will focus on the following scenarios:
    - Quick Start on Spark: Provides an introductory quick start to Spark using Python and Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs). We will review how RDDs have actions and transformations and their impact on your Spark workflow.
    - A Primer on RDDs to DataFrames to Datasets: This will provide a high-level overview of our journey from RDDs (2011) to DataFrames (2013) to the newly introduced (as of Spark 1.6) Datasets (2015).
    - Just in Time Data Warehousing with Spark SQL: We will demonstrate a Just-in-Time Data Warehousing (JIT-DW) example using Spark SQL on an AdTech scenario. We will start with weblogs, create an external table with RegEx, make an external web service call via a Mapper, join DataFrames and register a temp table, add columns to DataFrames with UDFs, use Python UDFs with Spark SQL, and visualize the output - all in the same notebook.

  • Are you interested in offloading ETL and infrequently used data from data warehouses to Hadoop? With growing volume and variety of data and growing appetite of business for trusted information, manual and custom approaches to adopting Hadoop are creating delays and frustrations. Successful customers have identified ways of leveraging the Big Data Fabric approach to Hadoop, which maximizes developer productivity and future-proofs your environment against change for faster, more flexible, and more repeatable data management on Hadoop. Join Amit Kara, Big Data Field Expert at Informatica, to learn about key lessons and best practices he has gathered from his time onsite at actual customers sites helping them become successful with data warehouse optimization on Hadoop.
  • In the traditional world of EDW, ETL pipelines are a troublesome bottleneck when preparing data for use in the data warehouse. ETL pipelines are notoriously expensive and brittle, so as companies move to Hadoop they look forward to getting rid of the ETL infrastructure.

    But is it that simple? Some companies are finding that in order to move data between clusters for backup or aggregation purposes, they are building systems that look an awful lot like ETL.
  • We live in a world that's obsessed with quantifying everything. Whether you are a marketer, a finance person, a journalist, or simply trying to persuade and inspire someone in your team, data can make a big difference. But data alone is not enough; you must make your numbers meaningful. The secret lies in telling the story behind the numbers.

    In this webinar we'll touch on:
    -The elements of a compelling story
    -Small datasets: distilling big data into meaningful insights
    -Case study: D.C Thomson uses data visualization to get 62% more viewer engagement

  • There’s always been a divide between business and IT. And now the demands of big data have widened that gap. To close it, we’re seeing the emergence of a new role—the data artist. Data artists go beyond traditional analysis to create visualizations that portray facts, relationships, flow, and patterns in ways that the average business decision maker can quickly understand. They literally paint with data—transforming terabytes of often obscure data into meaningful information. Of course, data artists need flexible, extensible tools that help them understand and visually communicate the living, breathing nature of data. Interactive, multi-dimensional tools that offer real-time visibility into data from all types of data sources can help data artists reach their full potential.
