Why Your Organization Needs Comprehensive Security Operations

How prepared is your business to fend of bad actors seeking to infiltrate your network systems and breach your data?

Imagine, if you will, the following scenario: It’s 5:30 am, and an employee has just clicked a malicious link in a phishing email. An attacker, armed with ransomware, has just gained access to your enterprise.

Is your security team ready to fight back without significantly impacting your business?

Your team must be able to detect the attack with well-configured tools across endpoints, the network, and the cloud all working in harmony to raise the right alarms. You need skilled security engineers on duty at 5:30 a.m. to quickly respond to and investigate the alert. And these same security engineers need to act independently with authority to remove or contain the infected workstation from the network, as well as revoke and reset the user permissions for the phished employee.

All these steps must happen in minutes to successfully combat the attack

A response must be immediate or your business faces exponential risk in terms of significant damages. And even after mitigating the attack, it’s arguable that the security team’s most important work is still to come. The team needs spend time and put the attack into context to holistically fix any gaps in your defenses that led to this incident. It can’t sit back and wait for another attack in a game of cybersecurity whack-a-mole whenever a compromise occurs.

If these tasks seem too daunting, fear not. Our new e-book, the Comprehensive Guide to Security Operations, reveals the key aspects of a strong security operations framework and shows you how to minimize risk and continuously improve your security posture.
