Sustainable Security Operations

Security Event Management / Logging 2017 February 09 0 comments

The number and types of incidents organizations face daily are steadily increasing, as is the cost of complying with regulations and managing policies. Yet an unintegrated, distributed, and complex security and IT infrastructure makes it difficult for analysts to notice and act on important events, trends, and changes. It also impairs the security administrator’s ability to identify, understand, and respond to risk factors and trends in a proactive and timely manner. In fact, a recent Intel Security survey of 565 security decision makers found that it takes eight working days, or 64 hours, for a security investigation, from detection to a return to health. And on average, security decision makers use 4 tools to get the job done.

Further compounding this challenge is an ever-growing volume of data. Threat intelligence and contextual data comes in from multiple separate sources and solutions—from the cloud, network, and endpoints—making it almost impossible to get a complete and coherent view of the security state across the environment.

While dealing with incidents monopolizes much of the security operations center (SOC)’s resources, the CISO is responsible for the larger picture of risk and compliance. In order to bridge operational and data silos across these functions, an effective strategy requires an adaptive security architecture that enables organizations to enact optimized security operations.

This approach increases efficiency through integration, automation, and orchestration, and reduces the amount of labor-hours required while improving your security posture. This paper explores how you can successfully adopt sustainable security operations with optimized processes and tools.

The goal is to compress decision making and action cycles to more quickly detect, contain, and remediate attacks, insider threats, and compliance infractions.
