Predictive analytics is finding its niche in various applications across various industries. One of those is helping businesses identify security threats. Business Wire brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Predictive Analytics in Cybersecurity: How Does It Help Prevent a Data Breach.”

The cybersecurity environment is shifting. Firms and government agencies are faced with larger and broader changes to their industries and organizations than ever before. Most of this change comes from the ways we create, collect, store, and share information. This information, which is such a tempting target for hackers, criminals and others, makes cybersecurity one of the top issues on every executive’s mind.

Organizational data isn’t new — organizations have been collecting data about accounting and finance, operations, supply chain, and customers for a long time. What is new, and what makes big data different, is the technology that gives a business the ability to collect and use this information in new ways.
