Data scientists are in high demand, but there aren't enough of them. The struggle for skilled security professionals to pull insights and analyze dense data to correctly detect and then effectively respond to threats, cannot wait until there is more talent in the pool -- especially when threats are increasing and attackers are so highly motivated. This webinar will discuss how automation bridges the cyber skills gap and allows junior people to do powerful things, including data collection, analysis, threat hunting and incident response. And, increases productivity of all IR and SOC staff.
