Re: Getting up to speed on security analytics
Thanks for your comments Marilyn. I would advise to start evaluating tools that provide security analytics using techniques outlined in the post. The actual tools will depend on the data and assets you need to secure. Building a team of data scientists is a tougher option and needs a pre-requisite the actual data that they would work on. If the off-the-shelf tools do not satisfy your requirements, it is definitely worth pursuing.

Getting up to speed on security analytics
Thanks for a very interest post, Krishna. There definitely seems like a lot of potential in security analytics, but, as you point out, it's very different than traditional approaches. My question is whether companies should be adding data scientists to their security teams, and if not, whats the best way for them to get the best big data tools (and knowledge) into their security tool box.
