Why Cybersecurity Analytics and Operations?

“Look for cybersecurity breaches in the news- and you’ll see everything from large hospitals, to small doctor’s offices. You’ll find breaches at big retail chains or local restaurants. That data loss turns into identity theft and misuse of financial instruments in the billions of dollars annually.”
