Advanced Targeted Threats are driving enterprises to collect more threat data and to move to continuous monitoring of IT systems to more quickly detect and mitigate vulnerabilities. This results in an order magnitude increase in the amount of data being collected in the name of security. There's been a lot of hype about "big data" as the answer to all security problems. The reality is big data tools will play a role, but security analytics is where the advances are needed - just as business intelligence analytics was required to turn big data into business value.

This SANS webinar will detail what it takes to deploy meaningful security analytics, summarize the results of a recent SANS Security Analytics Survey, and show how security analytics fits in to the Critical Security Controls. Attend and take away ready to use guidance for increasing security in 2014 and get a preview of more detailed content that will be presented at the SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit being held in Arlington, VA, February 10-11.
