How Cognitive Analytics Can Dramatically Improve Security Operations
Track: Keep it Safe
Thursday, Dec. 7, 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
The state of cybersecurity is reaching an inflection point as security analysts gather more data and apply more analytics to address the rapidly changing threat landscape. The increases in workload are approaching the limits of what's possible with humans alone. Most organizations can't process all the alerts they are getting in their environment. They are also very susceptible to variances in analyst performance and fatigue during the day. Things are only set to get worse as the number of threats and their diversity keeps increasing. Session attendees will learn about how the new era of cognitive security can outthink and outpace threats with security that understands, reasons and learns. IBM has invested heavily to provide solutions to dramatically improve cybersecurity by addressing skill shortages, increasing accuracy, and improving incident response times leveraging Watson for Cybersecurity cognitive capabilities. A short demonstration of IBM's Watson cognitive capabilities will be included in this session. In this session, you'll learn:
1. How cognitive technology will transform cybersecurity
2. How easy it is to begin leveraging cognitive technologies
3. About evolving threats in cybersecurity.
