Only 10% of executives feel confident in their organization’s ability to analyze large data sets for security trends, although 77% are collecting logs and monitoring data from various systems and security devices, reveals a new survey.
“Respondents are trying to add intelligence and improve analytics of the security data they’re collecting, but they’re struggling in various ways,” says Deb Radcliff, executive editor of the SANS Analyst Program. “The primary issue is they’re not able to make the associations to detect security events among their event and log data.”
The survey also revealed that organizations were falling behind in their ability to detect security threats because they were — quite literally — gathering too much information to sift through. While most security operations teams are still relying on traditional SIEM and log management, there are new challenges facing many organizations that these products may not address, More scalable and flexible analytics platforms are gaining interest and attention from the security community, and will likely continue to do so; given the threats and attacks faced today.
