It is the tragedy of the 21st century! Terrorism has become big business to some blood thirsty tyrants who would stop at nothing to use human beings as collateral in their quest for more resources.
The Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, Boko-Haram...the list is endless. They are found all over the globe. Their objective is to kill, to steal and to destroy. Therefore, their master can only be what you and I can rightfully guess at the slightest instance.
But what is the solution to the sophisticated terrorism that we witness on both a local and global scale today?
Well, Big Data coupled with specialized Predictive Analytics at the right place and at the right time will not only provide the right answers to the terrorism menace--You will be amazed how the possibilities of Open Data and a willing global citizenry collaborating and uniting against terrorism will definitely deal a fatal blow to the architecture of terror.
It is an open secret that terrorist groups are highly financed, trained and equipped. This means that in the wake of today's Cyber Warfare, the most likely winner of an encounter with Cyber terror is the person who has the ultimate trump card of the Information Age--the card of Big Data that has been transformed into smart data through Predictive Analytics!
