Cyberattacks are increasing, and the cyber landscape is as unpredictable and treacherous as it’s ever been. Consequently, traditional defense systems that continue to have a role, such as perimeter defense, are nonetheless less effective against the cyber onslaught. Advances in certifying user identification and authentication are bolstering renewed security efforts. An emerging solution with great promise is analytics-driven security, which relies on deep analysis of large data sets to discern patterns that enable decision makers to more easily thwart cyberattacks. Learn how the analysis of data can improve security at your agency.
