Security is the word on everyone’s lips but what can you really do with the analytics data behind it? A new survey from SANS has revealed how organisations are putting that data to work.
Firstly there’s threat detection, prevention and response programs. 88% of organisations use analytics in their prevention programs, 89% in their detection programs and 86% in response programs.
Only 21% were ‘highly confident’ their organisations were effectively using security analytics and intelligence solutions.
Machine learning is also an up-and-coming area. Only 22% of respondents use tools that incorporate machine learning.
There’s also automation, although complete automation has a fair way to go yet. Only 4% consider their analytics capabilities to be fully automated.
