Cybersecurity Beyond the Network Reach
As threats are becoming more complex, targeted, and sophisticated, security operations centers (SOC) need a tool that provides context around threats and how the landscape beyond the perimeter interact with their network. Current Threat Intelligence: Evidence-based knowledge about an existing hazard designed to help organizations understand the risks common and severe external threats, used to inform decisions regarding the subject’s response. LookingGlass Cyber (n) - Actionable, relevant, and timely information that can help when assessing the security posture of an organization. A little more left. No no, that’s now too far... Platforms (TIPs) aggregate, correlate, and analyze threat data, but analysts need more to defend your organization. The modern-day SOC requires a threat platform that marries automated intelligence with human tradecraft.
In this Technology Spotlight, Chris Kissel, Research Director at IDC, discusses the gap in current security postures and the inner-workings of a sophisticated SOC that is able to address varied threat vectors, including:
- Benefits of a unified threat platform
- The importance of visualizing the entire threat ecosystem
- How to reduce false positives and improve SOC processes
