The best way to take a holistic approach to the current threat landscape is to define security issues as business problems and then put the problem before the solution - not the other way around, contends RSA CTO Zulfikar Ramzan.
Imagine a world where incident alerts arrive 30 minutes before problems even begin - you'd actually have the power to prevent outages and deliver a truly seamless experience to your customers. Sound impossible? Think again.
A superior AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) solution can help maintain...

Artificial intelligence and machine learning will have a significant impact on lowering the cost of securing an organization because it will reduce the need for advanced skillsets, predicts Rapid7's Richard Moseley.
Data science is playing a fundamental role in a more dynamic approach to cybersecurity, says Jim Routh, CISO of Aetna, who stresses the importance of applying machine learning to front-line data security controls. Routh will be a featured speaker at the ISMG Security Summit in New York Aug. 14-15.
To have any hope of keeping up "with the exponential rise in variants in malware," organizations must reduce their attack surface, in part by using technology designed to learn what attacks look like and respond as quickly as possible, says Cylance's Anton Grashion.
Security experts warn that hackers could one day make use of machine learning and AI to make their attacks more effective. Thankfully, says Cybereason's Ross Rustici, that doesn't appear to have happened yet, although network-penetration attacks are getting more automated than ever.
Incident response challenge: How to deliver actionable information to security analysts to enable them to better triage? "The quicker you can detect and respond to an incident, the more you're likely to be able to contain and minimize the risk associate with it," says IBM's Mike Spradbery.
