Business Reporter Breakfast Briefing – The Future SOC
How are cyber-security solutions changing as organisations migrate to the cloud? As organisations migrate to the cloud, security operations centres (SOCs) are looking for cloud-centric and digitally-native cybersecurity solutions.
Cyber-risk quantification is driving strategic investment decisions and enabling CISOs to inform risk-based approaches to active vulnerability management and to demonstrate return on investment in relation to threat prevention. However, the adoption of orchestration and automation is slow despite the potential gains in optimisation, largely due to a lack of confidence in real-time reactive intervention.
These and other trends are creating challenges for the current approaches used in SecOps. For example, the breadth of solutions and complexity of the problem can lead to vendor lock-in, especially when niche capability providers are acquired by major players and absorbed into monolithic portfolios. Organisational structures also create problems, with siloed controls leading to complexity in management and orchestration, preventing a holistic response strategy.
At the same time the volume of data that CISOs must deal with is immense and expanding. There are difficulties in maintaining monitoring that is relevant to business operations. Data volumes and the cost of collection, analysis and detection can be prohibitive. Diverse environments and a fragmented perimeter add to the complexity of data processing and the formulation of responses. As a result, security postures are rarely optimised.
The next generation of SOC operations will have to support the needs of a wide variety of business, cyber and technology stakeholders. Flexibility will be needed because future SOC capabilities across people, process and technology will vary by organisation type and will be informed by exiting investment and wider business transformation programmes.
This roundtable promises collaborative learning and actionable strategies for navigating the evolving cyber-security landscape. Join us for a dynamic breakfast briefing on the future SOC, where active attendee participation drives insightful discussions.
The topics we will explore
During the meeting we will focus on questions such as:
What are the current security trends that are challenging SOCs?
What do evolving cyber-threats mean for business and how can organisations ensure they are protected against them, especially when the scale of modern infrastructure means an explosion of vulnerabilities?
How do businesses that are changing rapidly get a single view of all exposures, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and risky user behaviours?
How can they prioritise their vulnerabilities, visualise the defences needed, and be faster to fill gaps?
How can CISOs ensure that security teams with limited resources and skill sets are able to make the most of the disparate collection of complex security tools they have acquired?
How can CISOs demonstrate to the board, with business-relevant evidence, that security is improving, and that risk reduction is correlated with spend?
