  • Webcast Aired Wednesday, 11 Nov 2015 1:00PM EST (11 Nov 2015 18:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Javvad Malik, James Carder, Allan Thomson

The majority of organizations investing in analytics and intelligence reported better visibility and more accurate response to actionable events, based on results of the SANS 2014 Security Analytics and Intelligence Survey published in October 2014. However, fewer than half of enterprise users of analytics feel they've achieved the appropriate level of automation and integration across their enterprises.

Have analytics and intelligence become more automated and integrated since 2014? If so, how much improvement have organizations made in connecting the dots, detecting indicators of compromise and reporting?

The SANS 2015 survey on security analytics and intelligence reveals the answers to these and other questions. Results presented in this webcast will provide a roadmap for future use of analytics and answer whether today's models are meeting the challenge of having increased amounts of data to analyze and acquire meaningful information from.

This webcast is presented in two parts.

In this webcast, Part 1 of a two-part webcast series, attendees will gain insight on the following:

  • Analytics gaining a foothold: New systems and operations covered in analytics programs this year
  • Sources of security analytics: More security analytics data from more sources and how this plays into the services model
  • State of analytics: Visibility improvements, comprehensiveness of coverage and automation of intelligence gathering and reporting
  • Measured improvements: How current implementations are improving the bottom line
  • Best practices: Tools and techniques for using analytics to discover and follow up on attacks
  • Part 2, held Thursday, November 12, 2015, will discuss how analytics needs to mature and the improvements survey respondents plan to make in the future.
