Abstract: Incident Response and SOC team members get thousands of security alerts every day. Keeping track of every notification manually is impossible as the resources required are cost prohibitive. If these problems discourage you from implementing incident response in your organization, here is something worth considering. Machine learning streamlines the cyber incident detection and response process, making the results more accurate with much less manual work. Through its algorithms, you can also observe and detect anomalies that may indicate a cyberattack attempt. It is essential to know about the advantages of machine learning in today’s challenging cybersecurity landscape.
Join us for our webinar where we will address incident detection and response process issues and how machine learning can solve them. The discussion will also focus on career opportunities for professionals who wish to pursue incident response as a career.
- Common incident response detection and response challenges
- Streamlining incident response problems with machine learning and control orchestration
- Career scope and opportunities for new students and professionals who would like to transit into this sector.
- Why an advanced degree in cybersecurity is beneficial to climbing the corporate ladder
