Reducing the Hacker’s Information Advantage: How Analytics Improves Cybersecurity in Education

Thursday, Aug. 11 | 1 p.m. ET

Most education institutions – and probably your own – already use layers of security solutions to protect themselves against hackers. So why do we still hear about cybercrime at such an alarming rate?

Chances are your institution relies on traditional solutions that have a limited ability to see all interactions within your network. It’s difficult to accurately assess and predict abnormal system behavior. So you’re left to the time-consuming process of investigating every alert, while hackers gain more knowledge of your network and adapt their defenses to evade further detection.

Our analytics experts will explain and demonstrate how you can:

  • Combine big data and behavioral analytics to gain an information advantage over hackers.

  • Detect and respond to cyber threats efficiently and proactively.

  • Mitigate attacks before they do significant financial or reputational damage.
