Guidance Software’s EnCase Analytics collects and aggregates enterprise endpoint data. If this is done over a period, then the result can be used to help define normal behaviour; that in turn enables you to spot anomalous activity.
The source data becomes more valuable if enhanced with contextual information about, for example, machines, users and processes.
Guidance Software is giving a webinar on 9 September at 11am PDT called Analytics for the Government: adding depth with contextual data which considers how to use EnCase Analytics amplified in this way. Although government agencies are specifically covered, the principles must apply to any company. There is more information and a registration link here
Looking up the details of this event reminded me that Guidance Software does a lot of webinars covering its major activities – eDiscovery, cybersecurity and forensics. Some, like the one on 9 September, cover technical subjects aimed at users or potential users. Others achieve a wider educational aim.
A handful of recent ones deserve particular attention. Of the eDiscovery-related webinars, one is called Designing a defensible eDiscovery process, with speakers from Seyfarth Shaw LLP and iDiscovery Solutions. Another is called The Intersection of privacy, security, and eDiscovery, emphasising that these subjects are related. Yet a third is called is called Taking control: benefits and best practices for bringing review in house.
Amongst the webinars on cyber threats is one allied Understanding and conquering POS security threats.
Lastly, and on the Inside Counsel website rather than Guidance Software’s own site, is a link to a webinar which I did with Guidance Software. It is called International eDiscovery: data protection, privacy cross-border issues and I was joined by Patrick Burke of Reed Smith, Scott Cohen of Winston & Strawn and Chad McManamy of Guidance Software.
As you can see from this selection, the range of topics is wide. Many of these webinars are relatively short, and I would encourage you to run your eye down the list to find things of relevant.
