Improving Your SOC Efficiency with Advanced Security Analytics
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, January 24, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
The overwhelming number of alerts generated by traditional security tools puts a huge strain even on the best security experts, leaving just minutes for them to decide whether an alert indicates a real cyber-attack or is merely a false positive; this analysis is still largely manual with very little automation and decision support available from the security tools. In fact, the biggest challenge the security industry is now facing is the lack of qualified experts to deal with the growing number of cyber-threats.
To address this massive skills gap, a new generation of security solutions has emerged recently, with vendors focusing on filtering out the statistical noise and bringing the amount of security alerts to a manageable number of alerts categorized by their severity, improving security analysts’ efficiency with intelligent automated controls and, last but not least, on enabling even non-technical persons to make informed decisions and initiate incident response as quickly as possible.
From statistical correlation methods to machine learning algorithms, from risk models to behavior profiling, from threat intelligence to cognitive technologies – there is a lot of exciting new developments going on in information security, which promise to dramatically improve the efficiency of your SOC.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, you will learn about:
- The ever-increasing sophistication of modern cyber-threats;
- The next-generation security solutions based on Big Data Analytics and other technologies;
- The new ways of making a security analyst’s job easier and more productive.
In the first part of the webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the current challenges IT security is facing and the emerging technologies aiming to solve them and to dramatically improve the efficiency of security analysts’ daily jobs.
In the second part, Csaba Krasznay, Product Manager at Balabit, will talk in detail about his company’s Contextual Security Intelligence approach, which combines traditional and next-generation security tools in a unified security platform directly integrated with an existing Security Operations Center.

PSD2 and the Open Banking Standard are regulatory mandates being applied to the banking industry by the European Banking Authority (EBA) and Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) across Europe and in the UK respectively. The regulations require that banks operating across the region expose open APIs to allow other banks and third parties to access the data they hold on customers, when the customer has given their explicit consent. Designed to improve choice for customers, create more competition and stimulate innovation in the finance sector, the introduction of 'open banking' in the UK and across the EU will transform banking as we know it.
