Threat intelligence can arm a financial service organization with the insight it needs to optimize its security controls. But threat intelligence may be of limited value if it only draws on the first-hand threat-identification experience of the organization itself. An external partner, such a managed security services firm, can enrich threat intelligence with insight about new and emerging threats from organizations across the global financial services industry. Such a partner can help an organization recognize threats it has never seen before—and help create an effective defense.
As many cyber security breaches in financial services happen outside working hours, a managed partner should offer round-the-clock support to protect your data. In addition, employing this program in the cloud can offer scalability and flexibility as your business needs change. Finally, operating with a continuous improvement approach that helps ensure the response to each incident may help protect you even more from the next one.
Incorporating a program to help reduce cyber security breaches in financial services enables you to become proactive in responding to a threat. Having a plan in place to address an incident can help to reduce the potential for a breach. In addition, the human-powered threat hunting a managed partner can offer can point you to the areas you need to address immediately.
