Webinar: An Introduction to Security Intelligence

With a reported 39%¹ attributed to business disruption from the overall cost of a cyber attack, the past year has seen Organisations rally their resources in an attempt to minimise risks.

¹ Statista (2015), Distribution of annualized costs for external consequences of cyber attacks on global companies in 2015.

Without access to the right data however, security experts are finding themselves lost in the dark, and unable to identify just where vulnerabilities lie.

Cyber attacks can occur at any time, and your security system must be able to prioritise resources to effectively manage an attack and prevent loss of critical data. In this Webinar, IBM’s Infrastructure and Threat Protection Specialist, Chris Ross, will give an introduction to Security Intelligence, and provide further details about IBM’s Intuitive cyber threat mitigation platform – QRadar.

  • How do we effectively reduce software monitoring costs without allocating more resources from our IT department?
  • How do we comply with best practice and prepare for audits?
  • Is it possible to “future-proof” our IT and licensing requirements?
