Security intelligence continued

Importance: In today's rapidly evolving threat landscape, it's not a matter of "if" an organization will be breached, but rather "when." In fact, many organizations are asking themselves "have we been breached already and just don't know it?"

It's critical that organizations are able to quickly recognize anomalous activity to detect and respond to security threats. This can be challenging, however, as many organizations are unable to define what constitutes "normal" behavior, and as a result, have great difficulty identifying which activity is abnormal.

Security intelligence can help solve this problem. With security intelligence, organizations can effectively baseline "normal" IT activity across their networks, and therefore more easily detect anomalies indicative of threats and breaches.

The job of an enterprise's chief security officer (CSO) is a difficult one. Devising a strategy that ensures the company's network and data are secure can be a daunting challenge. With high profile breaches like Target and Adobe making headlines recently, enterprise security has finally been brought into the public spotlight. This newfound awareness has put the pressure on enterprises to assure their customers that they are taking every measure possible to boost their security.

This leaves executives asking, where do I start? With so many different considerations to take into account, there is no single solution that will meet all the security needs of a given organization.

Here are the 11 essentials for keeping your enterprise secure.
