Last month a fire broke out in a care home in Moscow. It ended up having 9 fatalities and many injuries. Though the actual reason of fire wasn’t identified, the suspected reason was an electrical fault. This fire could have been avoided if the center was monitored at all times and any unusual activities were acted upon. The impact of this incident could also have been mitigated if quicker actions were taken. Similar incidents take place within a network of cyberspace and are called cyber-attacks. The threat of cyber-attacks is ever increasing and raging to cause destruction and let’s not forget the effect of these vulnerabilities on the pockets of the firms. According to CSO, Data breaches cost enterprises an average of $3.92 million. It has become extremely vital to step up our game and slash cyber threats. But how do we do that? Cybersecurity systems are already in place at the heart of most of the organizations, but these seething threats display the need for Cybersecurity Analytics. What is cybersecurity analytics and how is it useful?
Cybersecurity Analytics is the use of analytics delivering tools to surveil the activities taking place within a network along with making use of huge historic data sets to draw patterns and detect any anomalies or suspicious acts in the secured ecosystem.
