|Presentation title :||Threatscape 2012: Finding Advanced Persistent Threats with 'Big Data' Analysis and Correlation|
|Presentation Description :||Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are sophisticated assaults, carried out patiently over time by professional cyber-thieves who maneuver around traditional defenses, such as firewalls, and anti-virus software, in order to steal valuable or highly sensitive data. But how do you get actionable information that identifies when an APT is attacking your organization? Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald believes that the use of ‘big data’ offers new hope in advanced pattern detection that’s crucial for actionable insight into APTs.
At this luncheon, EventTracker by Prism Microsystems and Global DataGuard will discuss today’s threat landscape and how automated ‘big data’ analysis and correlation can help to identify patterns within existing data to pinpoint unusual or new behavior that may be indicators of an APT.
