During June and July, SANS conducted a survey that was taken by 647 individuals to explore how organizations are dealing with their security data for better analysis and detection. In this second installment of our two-part survey webcast series, Dave Shackleford will discuss how many organizations are implementing tools and techniques to deal with their big security data analytics problems. What are their biggest drivers for better analytics and intelligence, how many of them are using additional 'intelligence' tools and threat databases, and how are they automating pattern recognition? (A hint: About a third of them are still acting on 'hunches,' which is good from a skills perspective but impractical on a large scale.) Learn the answer to these and other questions by attending this webcast.
