  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Christopher Smith

The pace and sophistication of data breaches is forcing security teams to adjust their security strategies. Where prevention used to be the sole focus, now it's clear that detection and response are just as vital. Organizations are not finding the indicators of compromise within their environments soon enough, and they aren't responding to these incidents and removing them quickly enough.

In addition to rapid event detection, correlation, and response, however, we need the capability to predict future trends based on past and current behavior, which is where security analytics may prove useful. This webcast explores the growing necessity of security analytics and looks at some sample use cases to support its adoption.

The webcast will explore:
  • Why security professionals aren't asking the right questions - and what those questions are
  • Why many monitoring tools and strategies haven't worked
  • What security analytics is - and what it isn't
  • Some potential future uses of security analytics
