If you are planning to launch a new deployment or otherwise expand your security operations center (SOC) in 2018, ensure that cognitive technologies are available to help analysts digest threat data.
As the cybercrime landscape expands, SOC teams need endpoint security tools that can reduce the time it takes to gain actionable threat intelligence.
Investigative analysis tools enable SOC teams to proactively hunt for and mitigate cyberthreats instead of meticulously collecting and curating data.
Cognitive security solutions help security teams distinguish valuable threat data from noise on the network and respond to incidents more efficiently.
The key to aligning security with business objectives is to make assets secure by design, which gives analysts sufficient visibility to respond to threats.
Organizations can improve their security operations and response capabilities by adopting a multilayered approach driven by cognitive technology.
Many companies, including IBM, are taking a new collar approach and recruiting ex-military personnel to fill woefully understaffed cybersecurity positions.
Cognitive security tools enable SOC analysts to bridge gaps in intelligence, speed and accuracy, and empowers team leaders to address the IT skills gap.
New technologies like augmented and virtual reality may be the next big thing for security operations centers.
Gamification is an engaging way to motivate security operations center analysts to develop their incident response skills and situational awareness.
