Role Of Data Analytics In Cyber Security And Security Breach
1. Identifying threats
2. Predictive analytics
For example, predictive intelligence can be used to identify vulnerabilities in a system that attackers could exploit. By analyzing malware attacks and identifying common attack vectors, predictive data models can foresee where future attacks are likely to occur and provide recommendations on mitigating those cybersecurity risks.
