Keeping track of cyber threats isn’t easy. The sheer volume of information threat researchers must sift through makes it difficult to collect, analyze, and research that data on time. The key to success is leveraging advanced analytics. It has been estimated that it would take 8,774 analysts working full time for a year to process the same amount of security event data that advanced analytics can process in that same time frame. Advanced analytics takes you from simply monitoring cyber security threats to active threat analytics, management, and prevention.
Attend this webinar to learn how advanced analytics and machine learning can power threat intelligence, and enable threat researchers to:
- Conduct qualified and detailed threat assessments that can help keep your business secure
- Detect malicious anomalies in your internet traffic and catch cyber security threats before they seriously impact your network
- Gain total visibility of your attack surface and better determine what you need to do to prevent attacks
- Utilize the ATT&CK knowledge base in your security strategy
Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS.

He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe, and for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. In 2015 he went independent and currently provides cyber security risk consultancy services to a wide range of public and private companies. Colin has presented on Information Security at major events around the world, and has published a number of papers on security.
