Implementing geographical live location features into a security system can help companies predict, prevent, and recover quickly from cybersecurity threats.
Fremont, CA: Geospatial data enables people to track each other’s whereabouts, monitor live updates on storms or traffic, and find out provisions and nearby. As organizations utilize data-based-AI solutions to optimize sales, improve security, and more, cybersecurity experts are leveraging geospatial data for security.
Implementing geographical live location features into a security system can help companies predict, prevent, and recover quickly from cybersecurity threats. Although geospatial data can present sensitive information for hackers to breach into, it can also allow cybersecurity systems to handle potential breaches from every side.
Here are two ways how geospatial data can help enhance cybersecurity.
Encoded Office Space
Many companies implement geospatial data to determine safety and security parameters for their in-person and systematic access points. Employees can be granted or prevented access to company databases that include sensitive financial and employee records by setting a virtual security wall in specific safe areas. Also, most cyberattacks are from internal sources like unhappy employees, keeping a record of who has attempted access to company systems from which location can thwart the attack.
Geospatial Data for National Defense
Implementing live location information in comprehensive cybersecurity systems can allow national organizations to quickly take appropriate actions on current conditions, threats, and crisis. Defense systems with mappable and traceable physical locations in the digital sphere can enable security experts to track viable threats effectively.
National defense systems integrate geospatial data to focus on cyber threats by developing a solution that combines different intelligence information, analysis, information sharing, and other data in the geospatial solution. It enables all the platforms to work collectively to minimize uncertainty during a cyberattack.
