In the age of the digital world, owning a Security Operations Center (SOC) is vital for the cybersecurity of every organization. However, it is not necessarily true that every SOC is effective against cyber threats and attacks. The main reason behind this fact is a lack of standardized SOC frameworks. SOC framework requires a document to be designed to provide guidelines, requirements, and specifications in order to support cybersecurity operations effectively.
Due to the revolution of the internet, cyber-attacks on unsecured networks are increasing tremendously and organizations are on the verge of data breaches. Securing proprietary information, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), or any other sensitive data have become a daunting task. Preventing business disruption, information theft, and reputational loss is necessary to thrive and survive in the competitive industry.
In the world of cyber warfare, businesses are constantly under threats due to the ever-growing, sophisticated cyber-attacks. With the widespread use of technology; a surge in connected devices and advancement in computational techniques, cyber pests are also accelerating attacks proportionally and posing massive damage to organizations in terms of data breaches, compliance issues, and reputational damage. According to a recent survey conducted in the UK, 43% of all the businesses have experienced some form of cyber-attack in the last 12 months. To thwart this situation, cybersecurity has become an integral part of any organization. Having a robust cybersecurity posture can save your organization from the menace of cyber-attacks and give your top management a piece of mind. Nowadays, cybersecurity provides multi-layer security to company’s IT infrastructure, usually, through various information security tools and techniques such as IPS, IDS, cryptography, firewalls, authentication systems, antiviruses and, more importantly, the SIEM and SOAR. They have a crucial role in achieving the overall security endeavors of any organization.
With the ever-evolving threat landscape, cybersecurity is something that can neither be taken lightly nor ignored. This statement holds true irrespective of the size of your business. Although from a marketing perspective, every type of publicity is a good publicity, you would definitely not want your company to come into the headlines for a data breach.
