For years, organizations have turned to security events and logs, aka machine data, to meet compliance requirements for regulations and mandates such as PCI, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA, NERC, ISO, COSO, and the EU Data Directive. These compliance requirements typically include security event logging and retention, threat detection and alerting, and incident review and response. Additionally, organizations must measure the effectiveness of the many technical controls required by these regulations and mandates.In the past, organizations have turned to traditional Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) software to meet these requirements. SIEMs centrally collect event and log data from security devices. In turn, these logs can be harnessed for cross-data source correlations and rules to detect threats, after-the-fact incident investigations and response, and for compliance reporting.

History is being made today. The Indianapolis 500—one of the most coveted and iconic races in the world—is being run in Indianapolis, Indiana for the 100th time. As if that milestone isn’t significant enough, this is also the first ever sellout crowd, and the Indy 500 is teaming up with BlueMetal and Microsoft MSFT -0.26% to launch cutting edge technology that fundamentally changes the way fans will engage with the event.One thing sports fans love is statistics. If you’ve ever watched the Indy 500, you know that there are plenty of statistics and data points to go around—fastest lap, average speed, who’s leading the race, etc. The network does the best it can to share the relevant facts and figures as the drivers make their way around the 2.5 mile oval for 200 laps. Now, you will be able to track and monitor virtually every statistic you can think of in real time thanks to Microsoft Azure and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The dust has just about settled on Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 and, from the millions of lines of reporting and press releases as well as hundreds of hours of video footage of the event, what were the key takeaways? What will shape the telecom industry — and indeed the world — over the next five years? One thing’s for sure: The Internet of Things (IoT) will be front and center. In the last 12 months, it has already disrupted the 4G roadmap and become a prime driver of the 5G specification process. At MWC, IoT was present in every hall and touched everything from components, devices and applications to RAN, core and BSS/OSS. It is a driver of innovation in wearables, smart cities and drone applications.
