Take Application Security to the Next Level with Data Science (Ep. 77)

August 7, 2018 Jeff Kelly

If you've ever shared a document with an entire group or department rather than trying to figure out who specifically should have access to the doc, you've contributed to the security threat-level at your enterprise. Don't feel bad ... you're not the only one! And there are countless other threats facing corporate networks and applications every day, particularly as more enterprises are building their own software as part of digital transformation efforts. Traditional approaches to security help, but to take your defenses to the next level, look to data science. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Pivotal  Principal Data Scientist Rashmi Raghu and Director of Information Security Brendan Higgins join Jeff to talk about using data science and analytics to catch unusual and potentially malicious user behavior on corporate networks and share a real-world example the two collaborated on.
