Big Data Business Intelligence for Criminal Intelligence Analysis Training Course

Course Code

bigdatabicriminal

Duration

35 hours (usually 5 days including breaks)

Requirements

  • Knowledge of law enforcement processes and data systems
  • Basic understanding of SQL/Oracle or relational database
  • Basic understanding of statistics (at Spreadsheet level)

Overview

Advances in technologies and the increasing amount of information are transforming how law enforcement is conducted. The challenges that Big Data pose are nearly as daunting as Big Data's promise. Storing data efficiently is one of these challenges; effectively analyzing it is another.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn the mindset with which to approach Big Data technologies, assess their impact on existing processes and policies, and implement these technologies for the purpose of identifying criminal activity and preventing crime. Case studies from law enforcement organizations around the world will be examined to gain insights on their adoption approaches, challenges and results.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Combine Big Data technology with traditional data gathering processes to piece together a story during an investigation
  • Implement industrial big data storage and processing solutions for data analysis
  • Prepare a proposal for the adoption of the most adequate tools and processes for enabling a data-driven approach to criminal investigation

Audience

  • Law Enforcement specialists with a technical background

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice

Introduction to Big Data

  • Main characteristics of Big Data -- Volume, Variety, Velocity and Veracity.
  • MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) architecture
  • Data Warehouses – static schema, slowly evolving dataset
  • MPP Databases: Greenplum, Exadata, Teradata, Netezza, Vertica etc.
  • Hadoop Based Solutions – no conditions on structure of dataset.
  • Typical pattern : HDFS, MapReduce (crunch), retrieve from HDFS
  • Apache Spark for stream processing
  • Batch- suited for analytical/non-interactive
  • Volume : CEP streaming data
  • Typical choices – CEP products (e.g. Infostreams, Apama, MarkLogic etc)
  • Less production ready – Storm/S4
  • NoSQL Databases – (columnar and key-value): Best suited as analytical adjunct to data warehouse/database

NoSQL solutions

  • KV Store - Keyspace, Flare, SchemaFree, RAMCloud, Oracle NoSQL Database (OnDB)
  • KV Store - Dynamo, Voldemort, Dynomite, SubRecord, Mo8onDb, DovetailDB
  • KV Store (Hierarchical) - GT.m, Cache
  • KV Store (Ordered) - TokyoTyrant, Lightcloud, NMDB, Luxio, MemcacheDB, Actord
  • KV Cache - Memcached, Repcached, Coherence, Infinispan, EXtremeScale, JBossCache, Velocity, Terracoqua
  • Tuple Store - Gigaspaces, Coord, Apache River
  • Object Database - ZopeDB, DB40, Shoal
  • Document Store - CouchDB, Cloudant, Couchbase, MongoDB, Jackrabbit, XML-Databases, ThruDB, CloudKit, Prsevere, Riak-Basho, Scalaris
  • Wide Columnar Store - BigTable, HBase, Apache Cassandra, Hypertable, KAI, OpenNeptune, Qbase, KDI

Varieties of Data: Introduction to Data Cleaning issues in Big Data

  • RDBMS – static structure/schema, does not promote agile, exploratory environment.
  • NoSQL – semi structured, enough structure to store data without exact schema before storing data
  • Data cleaning issues

Hadoop

  • When to select Hadoop?
  • STRUCTURED - Enterprise data warehouses/databases can store massive data (at a cost) but impose structure (not good for active exploration)
  • SEMI STRUCTURED data – difficult to carry out using traditional solutions (DW/DB)
  • Warehousing data = HUGE effort and static even after implementation
  • For variety & volume of data, crunched on commodity hardware – HADOOP
  • Commodity H/W needed to create a Hadoop Cluster

Introduction to Map Reduce /HDFS

  • MapReduce – distribute computing over multiple servers
  • HDFS – make data available locally for the computing process (with redundancy)
  • Data – can be unstructured/schema-less (unlike RDBMS)
  • Developer responsibility to make sense of data
  • Programming MapReduce = working with Java (pros/cons), manually loading data into HDFS

=====
Day 02
=====
Big Data Ecosystem -- Building Big Data ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) -- Which Big Data Tools to use and when?

  • Hadoop vs. Other NoSQL solutions
  • For interactive, random access to data
  • Hbase (column oriented database) on top of Hadoop
  • Random access to data but restrictions imposed (max 1 PB)
  • Not good for ad-hoc analytics, good for logging, counting, time-series
  • Sqoop - Import from databases to Hive or HDFS (JDBC/ODBC access)
  • Flume – Stream data (e.g. log data) into HDFS

Big Data Management System

  • Moving parts, compute nodes start/fail :ZooKeeper - For configuration/coordination/naming services
  • Complex pipeline/workflow: Oozie – manage workflow, dependencies, daisy chain
  • Deploy, configure, cluster management, upgrade etc (sys admin) :Ambari
  • In Cloud : Whirr
