One of the most important things security practitioners want to know is “How secure is my organization?” Finding an answer requires a review of existing plans for all stages of an attack—before, during and after. Consider these questions:
Does our threat intelligence help us make faster, better decisions?
Does our security operations center diagnose critical threats in real time?
How quickly and effectively do our teams respond to an incident?
Do we focus enough resources on our people so that our organization is prepared?
These questions are integral to developing a robust security operation, yet recent IDC research shows that many organizations don’t have the right solutions or resources in place to address critical security issues, including:
Understanding user behavior and new business models (Internet of Things, mobile, social, and cloud).
Allotting enough budget and skilled professionals to handle current and future security challenges.
Keeping security processes up-to-date to close the gap between detection and response.
Scheduling time for cross-functional teams to prepare, test, and coordinate.
All things considered, a sound security strategy requires thoughtful planning and constant evaluation. Find out where you are on your security operations journey and see how you compare to your peers
