How can a supercomputer help enterprise security teams respond to today's evolving threat landscape? Martin Borrett of IBM and Ronan Murphy of Smarttech discuss the promise and impact of Watson for Cyber Security.
Chances are, your organization has a good grip on cybersecurity. You're collecting data on events and alerts, logs and configurations, and user and network activity. But is your good grip really just a good start? Think how much more you could do if your threat-fighting strategies could also draw on information that...
The estimated size of the black market for data in India is pegged at around $1 billion by an industry report. So what does this black market look like? How is the data procured, collated, validated and sold? And most importantly, what effect is this pilferage of data having on Indian enterprises?
This session will...
The best starting point for effectively safeguarding data and protecting against breaches is to clearly understand what kind of data an organization has, where it's located and the risks, says Jason Hart of Gemalto.
Hackers have apparently hijacked potentially thousands of vulnerable MongoDB databases and demanded ransoms for the return of critical data, with some victims paying up, according to security researchers.
It's a story you'll watch unfold time and time again. The breach. The headlines. The confusion. The public apologies. The finger-pointing. And it's often followed by some form of the following statement: "But I was compliant." Compliance is never enough. The challenges are understandable, but taking the path of least...
Security leaders say data science is becoming the building block of contemporary security solutions, showing great promise for developing necessary cyber defences. But where and how is data science best deployed?
IBM's Vaidyanathan Iyer says security practitioners need new tactics to bridge the skills gap and fight emerging threats. He suggests the use of analytics and machine learning would easily help fill the gap in detecting threats.
Ransomware, regulations, botnets, information sharing and policing strategies were just some of the topics that dominated the "International Conference on Big Data in Cyber Security" hosted by Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.
For years, Wade Baker was one of the main forces behind the industry's most noted data breach investigations report. Now, as vice president of strategy and analytics at ThreatConnect, he has the chance to practice the lessons he's learned, as he explains in this video interview.
Organizations can apply user behavioral analytics - the practice of reacting to how people behave in the information security realm - to better spot and block data breaches, says Fortscale's Kurt Stammberger.
Phil Reitinger, president of the Global Cyber Alliance, wants to make one thing clear: This new group is not a coalition of the willing; it's a coalition of the angry. How, then, does the alliance plan to channel its powerful energy? Find out in this video interview.
As national security and defense threats become more asymmetrical and complex, intelligence organizations and agencies are challenged to respond more efficiently and precisely. With shrinking budgets and limited resources, these agencies need a solution that can help them accelerate the data-to-decision process, so...
