Becoming Proactive: Staying One Step Ahead Using Real-Time Information



Duration:60 minutes



In an increasingly fast-paced world, getting real-time information has never been more important. Security operations have historically been reactive, but with expectations shifting, proactive strategies are now imperative to effectively mitigate risk.  Social media is a key technological advantage that teams are integrating to maximize their coverage of potentially impactful events so they can make more informed decisions faster.

Join Monica Weber, Client Engagement Manager at Dataminr and Daran Thomas, Manager of Technical Security & Operations of General Electric Europe & Israel for a conversation about how GE is innovating their security operations to protect their people and assets and achieve business goals. Hear how the GE team leverages a global sensor network made up of public social media information to stay on top of breaking incidents near all of their locations across Europe and Israel.

After attending this webinar, attendees should be able to:

  • Implement strategies to confront the changing, real-time security landscape.
  • Use social media information with precision to separate the signal from the noise and gain actionable insight.
  • Coordinate an effective response from alerts derived from social media.
  • Recognize how real-time information impacts ROI so you can be more agile and efficient.
