Big data is all about storing, processing and retrieving information. Data may include calls to the police, phone calls, video and photos recorded by thousands of cameras and many other sorts of information in huge quantities.  

Within the context of military intelligence, the ability to retrieve information from a large database is the key to acquiring the ability to gather intelligence, leading to the ability to identify an attack in advance and be prepared.

Finding the right information, its processing and sharing it through connectivity to other relevant databases – enable the acquiring of intelligence information and cyber security.

Securing data assets requires innovative information security methods. Israel is among the most advanced states in this field, as it has built its military force and intelligence system on a security concept that is based on big data tools.
