Security has never been more important in the cyber world. Enterprise security can be a weak link in the effort to keep attackers at bay due to their limited capability in handling data traffic. This interesting information came to us from Info Security in their article, “Metadata as a Divining Rod for Security.”

Essentially, there is too much data and too little technology to compute it. As a consequence, many existing security applications are ineffective.

Metadata is data about data. Metadata can become a powerful weapon for enterprises looking to separate signals from noise, reduce time to threat detection, and improve overall security efficacy.

Security with technology is a constant concern for most organizations. However, it might surprise some to know that humans are still the weakest link in the security chain.
