Are you ready for what’s next in Cybersecurity?

  • An effective security program and operations must be risk driven.

  • Cyber security demands a multi-faceted and strategic solution.

  • One big challenge is getting employees with the right capabilities.

Traditional ways of maintaining security aren’t good enough anymore. An effective security program and operations center should no longer be compliance driven – it must be risk driven. Today, organizations need more actionable risk-driven security to know what is happening in their environment, to understand the associated business risk and to apply counter-measures when appropriate.

Cyber security is more than technology, and more than information assurance and network security. It’s a complex, multidimensional challenge that demands a multifaceted and strategic solution. Perhaps the biggest challenge organizations face is on the people side – getting employees with the right capabilities and also getting the organization to embrace the transformation in security.

IT operations face many problems. For example, breaches continue, though IT has hundreds of security solutions available. Products are siloed, employees often don’t learn new information or share information between departments. IT can often have no effective way to understand and prioritize risk. And a gap can often exist between IT operations and potential actions.

Security Operations Center (SOC) optimization can help alleviate problems and address policy, human, and operational issues.

Security Operations Center (SOC) optimization

Why SOC optimization? Because this all-encompassing solution will allow for growth in the future and protect against advanced security threats. A proactive approach can also prevent exploitation and exfiltration and provide real-time protection.

Today, it is necessary to “think bigger” than technology and address complex policy, human capital, management, and operational issues. To protect the most critical information, cyber strategies and solutions must deliver on several fronts. In the coming years, systems will become more diverse, distributed, complex, and ever more critical to day-to-day functioning. As you consider this reality, think about your organization’s cyber readiness by answering these questions:

  • Where are you vulnerable?
  • How can you mitigate the risks while fueling progress?
  • How can we help build your security operations function to manage security risks more effectively?

Armed with the answers to these questions, your service provider will be able to help you decide on a security solution that serves your needs now and in the years to come.
