Cloud-Based, Intelligent Ecosystems
This paper proposes a call to action for security executives to break the endless cycle of iterative tool adoption and, instead, move to data-centric security operations, driving integration and automation leveraging cloud-based fusion. Section I unpacks “intelligence” and addresses the challenges of integrating data from internal security tools and external threat feeds. Section II leverages lessons learned from the autonomous vehicle industry’s “sense, understand and act;” Section III, proposes secure intelligent ecosystems to enrich data workflow and apply machine learning. Section IV, addresses security business analytics and the importance of measuring business outcomes for boards of directors, chief information security officers, and security operators. Section V proposes areas for further exploration and investigation.
