Using machine data to monitor staff behaviours can identify potential PII breaches before they happen and avoid the huge fines that would follow once GDPR comes into effect says Matthias Maier
One of the goals of Breach Detection Systems is to provide the most effective automated detection with minimal false positives, because excessive false positives cause "fatigue" in the incident responder explains Dr. Giovanni Vigna

Vetting staff and contractors, including what they are saying on the internet and the darknet, is vital to protecting your company, says Tim Ramsey.
Dieter Lott discusses the security and networking solutions market and how organisations should be adopting a new proactive approach to security breaches given that IT infrastructure is in a constant state of change.
Preference for technical solutions, rather than organisational change is resulting in over-investment in stopping cyber-attacks rather than detecting attacks and defending data says James Henry.
Too many false positives inevitably reduce response times - and even response numbers - so raise the verification bar and thereby limit them says Chandra Sekar.
Better understand what's happening on your network and you'll be better prepared to tackle hostile intruders says Corey Nachreiner.
Implement a structured response with automated systems to bring down the cost of chasing false positives says Brian Foster.
Suspicious activity now needs to be monitored in the entire processing chain, hence implementing PCI DSS 3.0 helps stop attacks before compromises occur says Ross Brewer.
Every sensor has the potential to be used for malicious logging - and anti-virus based systems aren't an effective defence says Janusz Siemienowicz who adovcates monitoring of behaviour.
Track and audit changes on the network, especially by privileged users, and make it known that monitoring happens in order to reduce misuse says Michael Fimin.
The British Broadcasting Corporation was hit by a prolonged outage on its website and iPlayer video-on-demand service (VOD) last weekend, raising questions about the cause and whether it was subjected to a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.
Advertising tracking called 'canvas fingerprinting' is used on many websites and identifies unique individuals and their browsing habits and works surreptitiously.
Failure to properly monitor and update privileged access is a key vulnerability and Chris Stoneff highlights the leading weaknesses.
Knowing what's normal on the network will help identify attacks says Dirk Paessler
