The Big Data explosion is impossible to ignore. The problem is 90 percent of new data is unstructured, making it challenging for analytics to create intelligence. Most of this unstructured data is hidden from regular web searches in what is called the Deep Web. U.S. intelligence agencies have exploited Big Data from the Deep Web for years; only recently has this technology been available commercially.
The recent arrests in the Carderprofit scheme have government agencies buzzing about the benefits of Big Data mining provided by companies like BrightPlanet. Without the proper tools and deep web intelligence necessary to infiltrate this organization, these hackers would still be at large today.
