Why Cybersecurity is a Data Problem. Posted 21_10_10

What is it? Due to the accelerated rate of digitization that companies large workforces are going through due to the pandemic has increased connections that must be secured, with a greater need for authentication.

Why important. Behavioral data – such as the actions and interactions of users on your network – can be used to establish levels of "normal" activity, which can then be used to highlight outliers that could be a sign that something odd is going on. If a user is accessing systems or data from an IP that seems to originate in a part of the world where they are not usually operating, it can raise red flags. But as more of us are working remotely and perhaps from different locations than usual, it isn’t always that simple to identify.
