Maximizing Incident Response with a Modern SOC

By Shawn Murphy |   May 31, 2024

The goal of every security organization is to protect its data. This mission has become increasingly complex in the face of an expanding attack surface and increasingly sophisticated and frequent attacks waged by relentless adversaries. Effectively responding to security incidents requires the Security Operations Center (SOC) to validate alerts and provide the IR team with critical details on the scope of the threat so they can quickly and reliably remediate the issue.

The push for data transformation is compelling companies to modernize network operations and digital infrastructure. However, such transformational efforts demand specialized expertise. To modernize legacy networks, it's not just proficiency in the latest technologies that's essential, but also a deep understanding of the legacy systems targeted for upgrade. Achieving digital transformation goals can be significantly hindered without the appropriate talent. However, even more crucial is ensuring that individuals with the necessary skills are in place to secure those digital environments. The repercussions of inadequate security measures and limited personnel can greatly surpass the costs associated with delaying infrastructure upgrades.

SOAR Use Case: SEC Requirements For Cyber Reporting

By Todd Humphreys |   Nov 15, 2023

Today’s discussion on sustainability is increasingly prevalent in ongoing dialogues, touching on varied issues from governmental budgeting practices to environmental concerns over global population growth.
