Analysts can improve and automate their incident response processes by adopting the right malware classification scheme according to specific threat management goals.
As the threat landscape evolves, it is increasingly important for organizations large and small to invest in automated incident response solutions to reduce dwell time and eliminate alert fatigue.
By implementing orchestration and automation (O&A), security leaders can deliver the real-time threat intelligence their understaffed analyst teams need to punch above their weight.
As data breaches gain public attention, vulnerability disclosure becomes an increasingly crucial part of the incident response process.
For incident response teams, resuming normal operations in the wake of a cyberattack is the name of the game. However, lack of preparation and poor communication can impede recovery efforts.
According to IBM's Christopher Scott, who spoke at The Wall Street Journal's Pro Cybersecurity Executive Forum, the road to better incident response is "a marathon, not a sprint."
Security professionals can leverage freely available, open source security tools to protect their environments from threats.
A planned, communicated, rehearsed and organizationally tailored incident management program is central to an effective security strategy.
In security operations, the growing complexity and quantity of structured and unstructured data makes it increasingly difficult to manage.
