The challenges of the digital world
As technology connects us more and more, the boundary between the physical and the digital world is blurring. Many aspects of our lives are becoming more digital with emerging mobile, social, internet of things, and cloud technologies. Security considerations are growing exponentially with all of these advancements. The value of what we store online is increasing, and this has not remained unnoticed by criminals. This created a new playground for cybercrime.
Traditional defense fails
Security architects soon realized the need for layered security and in-depth defense strategies, as they noticed cybercriminals were outsmarting their prevention tactics and security controls. After all, there is no such thing as being 100% secure. Over the last few decades, we have seen organizations turn to data analytics to defend themselves. As adversaries attack your perimeter, applications, and infrastructure, they leave traces behind, hidden in the vast amount of logs generated by your machines. Security Analytics provides the information needed to detect and reveal malicious attempts proactively and in realtime.
Security Analytics or the comfort of knowing
In security, knowledge is more than just power. Our ultimate goal is to bring peace of mind to the business, and while it is theor etically called due diligence/due care, we like to call it the comfort of knowing. To achieve that comfort level, the organization needs to have deployed a functional SIEM (Security Incident Event Management). Not only will you be able to detect attacks or have a full overview of your security posture in a continuous manner, but you will also be able to respond more quickly to incidents. We aim for automated response wherever possible, initially by extending your SIEM use cases with automated tasks, but in the long run by implementing SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation & Response) should be your organization’s ambition.
