In security, the industry loves to bandy about buzzwords. Every vendor now seems to focus on user behavior, feature analytics, and of course employ the best data scientists in the industry. What organizations really need is effective detection that can spot the malicious activity that matters, without burying that critical information in a flood of false alarms that no one is staffed to sift through. This webinar will talk about the processes that can make security operations effective at proactive and realtime detection, and some of the underlying technology that can, buzz aside, enable real results.
