Noise – The Enemy of Intrusion Detection

How False Positives Thwart Intrusion Detection

Delve into nearly every story about a data breach and you’ll find that there was information and data available that could have warned about an in-progress attack.  But, in most cases, security alerts that were issued were buried in a flood of other alerts, so the one key alert was not seen.  This infographic looks at the issue around why poor signal vs. noise is major contributor to the failure of intrusion detection. It also examines the necessary changes to reduce the noise and false positives and obtain higher efficiency and accuracy.
