Strategic Identity Behavioral and Predictive Analytics Drive Actionable Intelligence to Keep Financial Services Organizations Ahead of the Cyber Curve
AUSTIN, Texas, Mar 3, 2017 — Edgile, the leading security and risk consulting firm and provider of industry-specific regulatory content libraries, today announced that it will present to leading financial services cyber security executives at InfoSecurity Connect 2017 on the role of advanced analytics to help financial institutions better predict, detect and control increasingly complex internal and external cyber threats. InfoSecurity Connect 2017 will take place March 6-8 at Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, CA.
InfoSecurity Connect is a forum where senior cyber security executives from some of the top U.S. banks, credit unions, insurance and financial services organizations come together for detailed discussions and valuable insights on how to improve their cybersecurity programs, and elevate their current information security initiatives and policies.
“As the security and threat landscape becomes more and more complex, CISOs need to think strategically about how to prepare their company to anticipate, quickly detect, and respond to threats before they impact their business and expose critical data,” said Don Elledge, CEO of Edgile. “Edgile’s comprehensive, strategic approach to IAM analytics enables organizations to more quickly and efficiently get ahead of the known and unknown threats that have the potential to disrupt today’s modern enterprise.”
Is your data safe? With the increasing number of external breaches and insider threats — such as physical loss of devices, insider misuse of credentials and crimeware by disgruntled employees — machine learning, behavioral analysis and risk-based access methods can reduce organizational-wide exposure as companies expand beyond traditional networks and devices. Examining behavior over time enables organizations to use predictive analysis to identify anomalies in user behavior (how, when, where they are accessing, storing and using critical data). Incorporating IAM analytics allows organizations to more closely monitor user behavior to identify unknown risks and remediate events in advance of a breach.
Predicting and Remediating Risk
According to Gartner, “Rapid advances in analytics and machine learning are quickly changing the security landscape. Security managers having problems detecting malicious events should invest in security analytics to enable better threat detection and higher security staff productivity.” Source: Gartner,The Fast-Evolving State of Security Analytics, 2016 (April 2016)
Edgile Speaking on: Improving Security Posture with Identity Analytics
Monday, March 6 at 4:10 p.m.
Identity analytics is the evolution of the current identity, governance and administration (IGA) market. It provides actionable insight into a company’s data and new ways to understand how it is being utilized. During the session, Larry Chinski, Edgile Director, Identity and Access Management, discusses how IAM analytics will enhance a corporation’s security posture by leveraging existing identity processes such as compliance management, lifecycle management and traditional security information and event management (SIEM) solutions. This session will define identity and security analytics, show the value an integrated identity framework, and the value realization an organization will receive with IAM analytics.
Identity, Access and Management (IAM)
Edgile’s integrated identity, risk, and governance approach enables leading companies, especially in highly regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare, to more efficiently move to the new security model needed by today’s modern enterprise.
