5 Ways to Better Use Data in Security

Use these five tips to get your security shop thinking more strategically about data.
3 of 6

Offer fast access to data.
If a security practitioner has a great idea to protect the organization, access to some data can often be a multi-step, week-long process. The loading of other data may have to go through an enterprise Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) process, which can take four- to six weeks. Infosec people need platforms that reduce that friction as much as possible so they can bring the best ideas to bear in protecting the enterprise. There has to be easy access with proper security controls. Data access should also be audited and the tools they use for analytics should be secure by default, built right into the platform.
