You wouldn’t play poker blind, so why search for cyberthreats without analytics?

Searching data lakes for cybersecurity threats or vulnerable assets without using scaled analytics is like playing a round of poker while blindfolded! You always want the upper hand, so in this talk, you’ll learn how security related content including pre-built reports, dashboards, and visualizations can handle common security and compliance requirements. Analytics ensure sound security postures so organizations don’t fold to cyber threats.

By simplifying the review of an enterprise data lake using easily implemented data science with scaled analytics, you can eliminate blind spots and significantly improve your organization’s cybersecurity framework. We’ll also show you how the SOC can extract the most value from security data, plus we’ll share many more stealth tips for your advantage.
