About this paper
Cybersecurity professionals are changing their focus from prevention to detection. Keeping the bad guys out is still important, but cybercriminals are increasingly able to bypass even the most sophisticated network defenses. Once they’re inside, you’ve got to find them fast – before they’ve had a chance to hide – with security analytics. This International Institute for Analytics paper summarizes a discussion with two experts from SAS: Christopher Smith, Director of Cybersecurity Strategy; and Evan Levy, Vice President of Business Consulting for Data Management. They describe how security analytics and proper data management help organizations quickly identify and investigate abnormal network behavior.
