The pace of cyber risk is unrelenting. It can feel intimidating to try and keep up.
We know more than ever before that cyber security is important. That means that the problem with effectiveness in our cyber security is not for a lack of trying or spending. So what’s holding us back from success?
Many companies still don’t have a security operations center.
Without an operations center for cyber security, the time until potential breaches are detected is greater, and the impact is therefore greater. A company’s cyber risk is evaluated by combining the likelihood of a cyber incident with the impact of an incident. When your company lacks a security operations center, the risk is much higher.
Operations centers are a valuable cyber security tool
There has been an overemphasis on tools in the cybersecurity industry, to the extent that many expect them to be a silver bullet. But no solution works on its own. To maximize the value of your technology investment, you also need to consider the process of your operations and continually update your strategies.
Optimize the technology you already have to fight cyber crime by bringing your existing tech stack together and centralizing your sources of data. With all your data in a central location, your security processes can be much more streamlined.
Additionally, a cyber security operations center helps you build resilience. It takes what tools you do have, puts them all in one place, and adds expert guidance so you can implement strategic cyber security actions. Many cyber attacks take place outside of business hours, and catching them as quickly as possible is vital to reducing their impact. Staffing an operations center 24/7 is an effective way to ensure your organization has protection round the clock.
Security operations offer continuous protection
Creating a cyber security operations center is a move that defines how you are taking action against cyber threats. The creation of a 24/7 monitoring space helps your team to move beyond reactive cyber security into proactive and continuous.
Visibility into the threat landscape is hugely important for your cyber security, and locating your tools within one operations center helps expand your visibility and give insight into the entire picture. With visibility, proper execution, and continuing research, your organization will be well-equipped to keep cyber threats at bay.
Cyber security is not something that you can accomplish and be done with — it is a continuous process. Threats are ever evolving; your cyber security tools should be evolving right with them. Fighting cyber threats is a long term process. It’s important to find long-term partners who can guarantee your success. For the creation of your operations center, that partner is Constant.
