Searching for the Signal Within the Noise of Alert Volume

In this latest podcast, Josh Goldfarb, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at FireEye, discusses best practices when looking for the signal within the noise of alert volume.

According to Goldfarb, there are many ways an organization can improve the efficiency of its security operations workflow, but one particular way makes a significant difference. A better quality of alerts means more efficiency: our work queue defines what our scarce human resources work on in a given day. Given that, doesn’t it make sense to supply that work queue with the highest quality, highest fidelity alerts possible to ensure that human resources spend their precious cycles on the highest value work?  In other words: more signal, less noise.
