Wanted: Security Analytics Skills and Resources

By Gina Roos  |  Posted 2015-12-01

Here's a challenge for security providers. Although the availability of cyber-security tools and resources has grown substantially since 2014, a survey of 476 security and business executives reveals a lack of skills and dedicated resources as major obstacles to detecting and mitigating cyber-security incidents and breaches. The 2015 Analytics and Intelligence Survey, conducted by the SANS Institute, indicates a disconnect, said DomainTools, a sponsor of the survey: 43 percent of enterprises fully understand the importance of cyber-threat solutions but still rely on manual processes to protect their organizations. Additionally, only 9 percent of their analytics and intelligence processes used for detecting breaches are automated. The good news: Remediation time is improving although cyber-security attacks have increased, said DomainTools, a provider of Domain Name System and Internet OSINT-based threat intelligence and cyber-crime forensics products. Key survey findings underscore the need for security providers to deliver services around the implementation and use of analytics tools.
