How to Create Value With Your (Security) Data Analytics Program

I have been fascinated by data analytics for all my professional life — from my early days of using Linux command-line tools like grep, cut, sort and unique to make sense of log files and identify the chain of events that harmed my web server, to using simple Excel and pivot tables to do pretty much the same with data of all types. Now, we have much fancier

Man With Machine: Harnessing the Potential of Artificial Intelligence

When we think of artificial intelligence (AI), we think of robots — machines that mimic human behavior or thought. This is partly the influence of comics, novels, movies and other pop culture tidbits, but the boundaries of AI have progressed far beyond this basic personification. Originally defined by Alan Turing, AI initially referred to any machine that co

Security Monitoring and Analytics: From Tools to Platforms

Janus, the ancient Roman god of beginnings and endings — from which we get the name for January, the first month of the calendar year — was depicted as having two faces: one looking backward and one looking forward. In the context of time, it can be argued that security monitoring and analytics initiatives are the Janus of contemporary cybersecurity. LetR

Industry 4.0 Drives a New Era of Mainframe Security

During the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last year, Industry 4.0 was the main topic of discussion. It was dubbed the fourth industrial revolution, a new technological vision for the entire IT world in which mainframe security plays a crucial role. In this world, the mainframe contains roughly 75 percent of enterprise data and 65 percent of act

How IoT Data Analytics Will Give Businesses a Competitive Edge

According to McKinsey & Company, the potential economic impact of the IoT could reach $11 trillion per year in 2025, which is equivalent to around 11 percent of the world economy. Making that a reality will depend on the widespread use of Internet of Things (IoT) data analytics. Security analysts must ensure that devices are not just managed and monito

UEBA: Canary in a Coal Mine

As a chief information security officer (CISO), how do you detect a network attack, breach or a data loss scenario? For years, security teams have been using a variety of tools to examine what’s going on in their networks.

Intelligent Code Analytics: Increasing Application Security Testing Coverage With Cognitive Computing

In a previous post, we examined how cognitive computing can greatly reduce the false positives and noise that are inherent in static application security testing (SAST). We also showed how the reduction of false positives can be done without impacting language coverage — i.e., decreasing the rule set — which is the approach of most application security offer
