Corporate Security Anomaly Detection

Corporate Security Strategic Deployment InitiativeACE partnered with the City of Edmonton Corporate Security team to develop a system that proactively identifies anomalies within Corporate Security incident records and alerts advisors of unusual spikes in incident counts. Adapting methodologies used in the Healthcare industry for biosurveillance, a brute force anomaly detection algorithm was developed for detecting emerging security issues and generating actionable alerts for Corporate Security advisors. Since the implementation of the tool human error alarms have decreased by 52%.
