Security Analytics For Dummies

Security operations centers and Security Information Event Management (SIEM) has been the center of the security monitoring universe. Over the last few years, however, the market began shifting from log aggregation and rule-based event monitoring to big data security analytics and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA). These capabilities have provided a new map to direct and address execution and critical resourcing issues that plague the industry. Automation and “bot” technology driven by artificial intelligence has begun taking over basic interactions, answering questions, and handling tasks. The same concepts are being leveraged in security.

This book is written with the expectation that anyone in your company should be able to read it, understand the content, and articulate the need for action around advanced cyber threats. This book helps you discover the basics about security analytics and be more conversational at parties — just in case you’re ever at a party where information security talk is cool.
