Information Security, as a function, sits at a great confluence of raw unfiltered data; perhaps more data about the enterprise than any other function of the organization. From state-based data such as vulnerability scan results, to event-based data such as IDS logs, we are collecting more and more information about the enterprise every passing day.
The next step is to make sense of this treasure trove of data. To find the nuggets of truth and transform them into useful information. To cut across organizational silos, and create actionable business intelligence from this vast warehouse of information.
