The Value of Graph Analytics
To understand the threats and opportunities, and to be competitive in today’s enterprise world, businesses must gather structured and unstructured data from all available sources.
Detangling the Web
One of the most fascinating concepts to emerge from Facebook was the social graph. Basically, social graphs mapped the user’s connections. The output was a graph defining and illustrating the relationships between the users, their connections, their connections’ connections, and more. Visualization of the graph along with its implications have been a great source of amusement.

Trends in IAM
The pandemic changed the way we all work. Work from home (WFH) has provided businesses with new challenges in Identity and Access Management (IAM) safety. Last year alone McAfee ATR observed an average of 588 threats per minute, an increase of 40% in the third quarter of 2020 (McAfee ATR, 2021).
Cybercrime: the 3rd Largest Economy
Extortion is big business. If measured as a country, cybercrime would be the third largest economy after the U.S. and China (Morgan, 2020). It is an understatement to say cybercrime has increased considerably since 2013. Billionaire businessman and philanthropist Warren Buffet recently wrote that cybercrime is now mankind’s greatest challenge, suggesting that cyberattacks are a bigger threat than nuclear weapons.
The Edges of Pandora’s Box
The Pandora Papers findings were brought together by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). Pandora definitely earns its name, and we know all too well how the ancient Greek story of Pandora’s Box turned out. In a recent disclosure, twelve million documents revealed hidden wealth, tax avoidance and, in some cases, money laundering by some of the world's richest and most powerful. The files exposed how some of the most powerful people in the world - including more than 330 politicians from 90 countries - use secret offshore companies to hide their wealth, uncovering dirty deeds that make honest folk cringe.
A Glossary of the Top 15 Graph Analytics Terms

Four Common Ways to Visualize Graph Data
What is network graph visualization and how can you start to use it today? There are many different ways to display, render, and interact with your graph data. Analysts are using tools from desktop applications like Graphviz, Gephi, and Cytoscape, web-based libraries and visualization platforms like sigma.js and Linkurio.us or data science platforms such as Python and Jupyter notebooks. In this post we look at an example from each of these categories to help you understand the options you have available.
Financial Services: Threats to Security
The reports of the increase in fraud, suspicious account activity, and money laundering have also increased spending on threat detection. Fraud impacts most industries, but financial institutions are often targets for the most advanced attacks. In financial institutions, these serious threats have historically been treated as IT problems, but are now seen as needing tighter integration with business analytics.
Connecting the Dots with Chris Rossbach
"The pandemic makes collaboration a little bit harder. There are definitely times when it would be great to have a whiteboard. But by and large, we've made a lot of progress and continue to have a lot of fun and largely be unaffected, so I think we're very lucky in that regard." - Chris Rossbach
