Today’s CISOs need agile security frameworks that enable digital transformation, supported by holistic strategies embedded into technologies, processes, and training programs.
This e-book shares the strategies and best practices of CISOs who have made security the cornerstone of business success.
Securing data and systems is a top priority for organizations. Meeting the challenge gets more difficult every day as attacks grow more sophisticated, employees use a more extensive array of devices and applications, and data flows into and out of your business in more ways.
Leaders have to balance these challenges with the need to collaborate, innovate, and grow a business. Also, you need a multi-faceted security approach that continually protects all endpoints, detects early signs of a breach, and responds before damage occurs. Furthermore, no matter how strong your defences are, preventive measures are no longer sufficient. As a result, you also need to adopt an “assume breach” posture that includes detection and response measures.
The traditional approach is to correlate information from a variety of tools using Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions. But detection still needs security teams to do out-of-band processing of records and data, then prioritize and investigate incidents. Data gathering and reconciliation are difficult, and the lack of a unified view complicates response and management.
As rapid detection and response become more important, these best practices have emerged:
- Gain a holistic view of your entire network, including cloud and hybrid environments.
- Build an ecosystem of security products and platforms that integrate and provide insights across a variety of platforms.
- Partner with technology vendors who collaborate and share information across the security industry.
- Combine data insights with human intelligence from security analysts, threat hunters to enhance the ability to quickly prioritize events.
Risk management is now an obligation for many Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs).
It includes minimizing the potential impact of increasingly sophisticated attacks by more effectively protecting a growing footprint of users, devices, applications, data, and infrastructure with fewer people.
- The lack of integration between security products makes it hard for security teams to quickly see and combat threats holistically.
- Seek out products designed to integrate with others.
