While you staff for employees who can focus on cyber security, the scale of the challenge might call for external experts to complement your talent bench to help with threat mitigation.
Tools like security information and event management (SIEM) can help your business sift through log data across the tech stack. It can update security teams about compromises and complement vulnerability scanners.
The work of cyber security is becoming so complex, however, that your business will need to get more intelligent about sifting worrisome intrusions from the pile. Since the more you go fishing, the more fish you're likely to find, you could automate some of the security operations at scale.
Such automation using AI is what a security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform enables. SOAR is a multipronged approach that aggregates data from a wide variety of relevant sources and provides a single view of the landscape. It can help to automate analysis, vulnerability checking and scanning tasks. Tasks that can't be easily automated are orchestrated to follow a specific playbook. Essentially, SOAR can help your business get more strategic about its cyber security programs. SOAR and SIEM together can form a part of your company's network detection and response.
As digital transformation accelerates, the hybrid workforce grows and the frequency of breaches increases, your business will need smarter ways of addressing cyber security. You'll need to work with transformative technologies without compromising data. Strategic partnerships and the right tools for threat detection and response are important to maintaining a competitive edge.
