Security Analytics

Traditional approaches to cyber security are proving to be less effective against increasingly sophisticated and automated cyber-attacks.

Businesses are turning to emerging technologies to improve their capability to detect and respond to previously-unknown cyber-attacks, and security analytics is among the most popular choices.

Security analytics helps to provide crucial visibility of what’s going on across a network, making sense of vast quantities of security data from a range of systems and devices to identify malicious activity flying under the radar of traditional detection methods.

Security analytics can provide serious value, according to information security experts. But at the same time, they warn that security analytics needs serious resources, requires talent and experience, is no substitute for human capabilities, and comes with some caveats and warnings about risks and pitfalls that need to be avoided if the full value of security analytics is to be realised.

  • Web security: Important but often overlooked

    Businesses increasingly rely on being online, yet web security is often overlooked. This is evidenced by the fact that the top web attack methods, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting, continue to be effective.

     These well-known vulnerabilities need to be addressed and web security needs to move beyond whitelisting, blacklisting and URL filtering. It needs to be dynamic in response to a dynamic threat. It also needs to take humans into account by responding to users’ needs and providing a working environment that is inherently secure and insulated from common web threats.

     Organisations need to be aware of their exposure to web threats and follow best practice to limit that exposure and mitigate the damage from web-based attacks. This is best achieved by monitoring all web traffic, securing web applications, ensuring data is not exposed to the internet unnecessarily, using good access controls, and implementing multi-factor authentication. The risk is often high, but it can and must be managed.
