Predictive Analytics for Cyber in Enterprises: Setting the PACE with Google Cloud Chronicle and Deloitte

3 min readMar 30, 2021


As more organizations embrace hybrid, multi-cloud environments and a work-from-anywhere model, security teams are realizing they operate in the “age of expansion.” More technology and data assets to secure, more telemetry data to analyze, more security tools to manage, more alerts to sort, and — in turn — more threats to defend against. This compounding threat environment has security teams asking, how do we focus on the threats that matter the most?

To position security teams to better handle their security posture and make faster security decisions across multiple layers of the organization, we’re excited to announce that Google Cloud Chronicle and Deloitte have teamed up to launch a scalable cloud-native security analytics and risk management platform for enterprises. Deloitte’s Predictive Analytics for Cyber in Enterprises (PACE™) helps organizations manage today’s expanding attack surface by combining Deloitte’s industry-leading cyber risk quantification and risk management framework with Google Cloud’s suite of products including Chronicle for petabyte-scale security telemetry analysis, Looker for advanced visualization, and BigQuery for AI/ML analytic modeling.

A few of the benefits from PACE include:

  • Actionable risk metrics. The sheer scale and diversity of data generated from security tools every second is a challenge many organizations struggle with: to efficiently index, search, and analyze. Using visualization and risk-based prioritization, PACE ingests and aggregates security telemetry into actionable metrics that help organizations efficiently prioritize and address threats.
  • Risk-driven, automated threat hunting and detection. To streamline threat hunting and investigations, telemetry data needs to be correlated by pairing traditional analytics with machine learning and other artificial intelligence models. Deloitte’s advanced, industry-leading analytics models are trained with real world deployments and attack simulations to perform analysis across petabytes of data. Combined with Chronicle’s scale and speed, PACE provides near real-time threat visibility that enables security teams to make more focused and reliable decisions.
  • Enhanced persona-driven decision making. Leveraging interactive dashboards customized by role, PACE helps teams ranging from analysts to C-Suite executives to make risk-based decisions about cyber threats, talent management, and security investments. Utilizing workflow management features, security teams can assign threats to appropriate owners, allowing for streamlined team integrations and efficient risk remediation.

The shift to widespread work-from-anywhere and massive cloud adoption only partly contribute to the expanding attack surface organizations face today. As the way we do business is reinvented, it’s critical for organizations to quickly focus on mitigating risks that matter the most.
