London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2016 -- InfoSec researcher, cyber security, governance, risk & compliance consultant Kieran Upadrasta has helped many small, medium and large sized businesses get the right footing as they begin to assess and evaluate their security and risk situation. Recently, he talked about a few important matters which he believes allows businesses to stay focused, evaluate and define the major that may be a cyber risks to their business security.
One of the most common and effective methods of identifying threats is User behavior analytics ("UBA"), a cyber security process that is used for the detection of insider threats, targeted attacks, and financial fraud. UBA is concerned with analyzing the patterns of human behavior, and identifying meaningful irregularities from those patterns by using algorithms and statistical. The irregularities help analysts point out potential threats. Instead of tracking devices or security events, UBA tracks a system's users. UBA functionality is preferred by big data platforms are increasing because it allows them to analyze a large amount of data to detect insider threats and advanced persistent threats.
Kieran uses a combination of different tools according to the needs and specific situation to come up with an effective security solution, his client said: "As a hiring manager I would have no hesitation in recommending Kieran. He has excellent technical skills, works well with others and a good team player. He is very thorough, hardworking and a pleasure to manage and /or work with."
One of the threats Kieran has identified and protected business against is an advanced persistent threat (APT), which is a network attack in which an unauthorized person gains access to a network and stays there undetected for a long period of time. Usually, the motive behind this type of threat is to collect data rather than cause damage.
Another client that called Kieran for help said in his testimonial: "I employed Kieran's limited company to contract for me. A highly technical consultant very astute excellent service and a very knowledgeable individual."
Kieran suggests that business that are concerned about repeated threat can adopt the continuous monitoring process and technology which is used to detect compliance and risk issues associated with operational environment.
