In security, analytics and reporting have three main uses: to predict and identify potential threats; to prevent security breaches; and to collect forensic data necessary to learn how and when a security breach occurred to prevent similar breaches in the future.
With advancements in technology, our ability to gather, filter, correlate and analyze security information in growing exponentially. Detailed security information, once painstaking to access and review, is now accessible in real time from cloud-based solutions and able to be reviewed in seconds versus hours. While the tactics to collect and analyze data are rapidly evolving with technological advancements, the needs of organizations to analyze information, correlate data to risks, generate alerts and communications, and deploy resources appropriately remain relatively constant.
In addition to predicting, preventing and analyzing security threats, the data collected by a well-designed security system also can have operational benefits. Security analytics have been leveraged to predict traffic patterns, improve floor plans, manage staffing levels, and control the flow and access of personnel and non-personnel through a space.
