Over the last few weeks, we’ve provided three tactics you can implement to improve your organization’s security posture. If you’ve already implemented these practices into your security strategy, congratulations! You’re already doing more than most organizations are. Let’s discuss how you can do even more to keep your network secure in this final post of this blog series.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions and Security Operation Center (SOC) services are great steps to improve your security posture. SIEM solutions give you the ability to aggregate all your network and system logs into a platform that makes the information simpler to review and manipulate into a meaningful format. This information is incredibly powerful in the right hands.
Most organizations do not have the man-power to review a steady flow of these logs during the day and hiring a full-time security professional in this market carries a large price tag. Why hire a full-time team member when you can have a full team of security professionals for a fraction of the cost? A SOC offers the great benefit of knowing how to handle the information coming into a SIEM solution or some other sort of information aggregator. So instead of your team trying to figure out what to do, the SOC will tell you what to do. They see this information every day, so they can give you best practice recommendations for fixing the issues before it can really harm your organization.
