Analytics is the key element for leveraging company’s cyber resilience. With increasingly advanced and long-running (persistent) attacks and the simple fact that every organization has to protect itself against all varieties of attacks, while an attacker only need one successful approach, organizations have to rethink their cyber security concepts. Organizations have to move beyond pure prevention. They have to move towards the PDR paradigm: Prevent – Detect – Respond.

At the core of such approach stands improved detection – and that is where analytics and Big Data come into play. Detection must be able to identify changing use patterns; to execute complex analysis rapidly, close to real time; to run complex analysis across a variety of data, ranging from network events to system logs and business transactions, and concrete user access to systems and data. This requires both advanced analytics, beyond simple rule-based approaches, and the ability to run analysis on large amounts of current and historical data – Big Data. Combining the current state of analytics with security and fraud detection helps organizations improving their cyber resilience.

Big Data in Information Security: Results from a recent Study
Dr. Carsten Bange, BARC • Dr. Sebastian Derwisch, BARC

BARC and KuppingerCole have jointly conducted a study on Big Data in Information Security, building on three well-received BARC surveys in recent years: “Big Data Use Cases”, “Big Data Analytics“, and “Big Data Survey Europe“. While the previous surveys focused on big data analytics in general, this survey concentrated on security use cases of big data analytics in information security and fraud detection. The survey examined a number of areas...

Keeping Pace with the Real-Time Revolution in Identity and Access Management
Patrick Parker, EmpowerID

The volume of security data and events has undergone an exponential explosion whose pace is only projected to increase with the proliferation of the Internet of Things devices. Fortunately, for the first time in IT security history the tools to analyze these firehoses of Big Data and provide real-time insight are appearing. What opportunities do these new tools present and how will they create a paradigm shift in the strategy for CISOs and security professionals.

Fraud Management vs. Security? Risk, Fraud, and Security!

Fraud Management vs. Security? Risk, Fraud, and Security!
Matthias Reinwarth, KuppingerCole

As of now, Fraud Management and Security, including Real Time Security Intelligence (RTSI) and advanced security and threat analytics are commonly segregated from each other. While this at first glance makes sense, given the different corporate buyers, there are three good reasons for a more integrated perspective. On is that the underlying analytical technologies are vastly the same. It is about machine-learning and pattern-based analytics, helping better protecting organizations against...

The Organizational Perspective: Should Fraud Management and Security Intelligence Converge?
Dr. Juergen Spitzner, Micro Focus • Andy Land, IBM • Martin Grauel, Balabit • Claus Vaupel, Zscaler

There are two facets of fraud – the business fraud and the IT fraud. The first is about people e.g. transferring money to accounts they have created for a fake supplier. The latter involves all fraudulent behavior in IT systems, particularly when it leads to financial losses. However, IT fraud includes attackers hijacking accounts of business users, ending up in business fraud. And most business fraud scenarios are related to excessive entitlements and SoD violations. So business fraud...
