May Cyber Intelligence Review

Over the past month, there has been significant activity in the Cyber / Intel space – particularly in the world of Big Data – with several policy developments and a handful of noteworthy transactions taking place.  The end of March included an announcement from the White House that six federal departments / agencies would be committing $200 million towards a new Big Data initiative, followed by April coming to a close with the House of Representatives passing three cyber-related bills. 

Big Data companies grabbed headlines for both M&A and venture capital fundraising in April, and Splunk, the first pure-play public Big Data company, saw its stock price double in the first day of trading after its IPO on April 19th.
