A practical guide to securing your data and IT infrastructure
From safeguarding corporate data to keeping e-commerce transactions secure, today’s IT professionals are tasked with enormous and complex data security responsibilities. In Data-Driven Security, Jay Jacobs and Bob Rudis draw together three of the most important topics in IT—security, data analysis, and visualization—to present a real-world security strategy to defend your networks. Turning their backs on insufficient security based on hunches and best practices, the authors help you access the world of security data analysis and visualization, where real data drives security decisions, and they teach you to apply the principles of that security with real-world cases.
