Each organization has its own unique attack surface, operating model, and risk tolerance. The challenge for CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) and IT teams is how to keep business running smoothly, without interruption, while at the same time securing and protecting data. And, since every organization is different, no single strategy will work for everyone.
Creating and leading an effective security program strategy requires consideration of your specific organization’s security environment, as well as the integrations and interactions between your people, processes, and technology.
While many strive to create in-house, permanent resources to build out their security programs, a lack of available talent, alert fatigue on existing team members, immature processes, and an overwhelming stack of tools is leading many toward third party security service providers.
In the face of unprecedented growth and diversity in both the IT environment they are charged with protecting and the risk and threat landscape they are defending against, CISOs and IT teams across the globe are turning to MDR solutions providers to enable operational continuity while minimizing friction, disruption, and financial risk.
In ESG’s new whitepaper, A Security Leader’s Guide to Leveraging MDR for Security Maturity and Development, they reveal how the emergence of modern managed detection and response (MDR) solutions providers are supplying security leaders with new opportunities to accelerate their program development.
This paper, commissioned by Arctic Wolf, introduces readers to a security maturity hierarchy and outlines how embracing the use of third-party security services is characteristic of maturing organizations as they grow and scale, enabling internal resources to stay focused on security strategies and architecture.
Inside, readers will learn:
- The five levels of security maturity, as defined by ESG
- Why leveraging MDR providers like Arctic Wolf helps maturing organizations as they grow and scale
- The specific outcomes in efficacy, efficiency, program development, and coverage MDR providers can deliver
