Is your organization one among the 44 percent who take less than a month to discover a compromise? Is your organization one of those 33 percent who take less than 24 hours to resolve cybersecurity incidents?
If your answer is 'No' for both or either of the above questions, it's time to revamp your Incident Response Plan (IRP) right away.
When fighting against cyber threats you should be as quick and efficient as possible. But often, SOCs lose time and energy performing doing mundane tasks. For instance, investigating every login failure to discover that one unusual login, and then going to your Active Directory to block that specific user, is not going to make your SOC efficient.
To optimize your SOC's performance, you need an efficient security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) system that eliminates the 24x7 eyes on glass needed to even begin acting on actual security problems. And such a system should seamlessly bring together indicators of compromise from across the network, help prioritize the incidents quickly, and most importantly automate the response to incidents.
When attackers try to breach your network, they follow a series of steps to ensure a successful breach. Similarly, SOCs also need to follow a series of steps to ensure successful mitigation. This begins with the initial data collection and ends with the recovery of network.
Sounds great! But how do you operationalize such a process? By implementing a solution that has both security information and event management (SIEM) and SOAR capabilities.
Leveraging both SOAR and SIEM can greatly improve the efficiency of your SOCs as it allows to:
Stitch together different events from across the network to get the complete security context and timeline, with Log360's real-time correlation engine.
Reduce the time to qualify (TTQ) an incident with interactive visual analysis, graphical representations of security events, and trend reports. Improve your forensic analysis with the super-fast search engine that comes with an intuitive search query builder.
Spot deviant user behavior and associate these unusual events with appropriate risk scores so as to prioritize investigations of incidents with the highest risk. Log360's machine-learning driven User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) component enables you to do this.
Automatically assign incidents to analysts based on configured rules, and also provide the analyst a means to comment on that incident. Besides this, integrate Log360 with ITSM tools like ServiceNow, ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus, JIRA, and more, raise tickets for every detected incident based on the rules that you set to ensure accountability in the incident resolution process.
Reduce the mean time to resolve an incident by automatically executing workflow actions at every stage of the incident management cycle.
The SOC is a central unit responsible for continuously monitoring and analyzing the security posture of an organization. The responsibilities of any SOC can be broadly classified as: thwarting attacks, continuously monitoring network security, and proving adherence to compliance mandates.Read about the
Develop your security strategy. Equip your SOC to effectively handle the core functions of cybersecurity: monitoring, detecting, responding to, and remediating security attacks. This requires you to invest in different security solutions such as an intrusion detection system (IDS), intrusion prevention system (IPS), system information and event management (SIEM), and other security solutions. Ensure that these security tools can orchestrate your IT, and provide a holistic security view of your network.Get to know the tools you
