No matter where you look in the security world today, you’ll see the terms machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). There’s been a great deal of interest in machine learning and AI as security vendors and their customers look for better ways to improve their security posture and fight against advancing cyberattacks. Machine learning and AI offer breakthroughs in solving problems in many other areas of our lives, so it’s only natural to try to use them to make similar breakthroughs in the field of security
The paper first explains the basics of the Cyber Attack Lifecycle and the need to address it through the Threat Lifecycle Management framework. Next, the paper explains the basics of SOCs, providing details of what SOCs mean in terms of people, processes, and technology. Finally, the paper walks you through a methodology for building a SOC with limited resources, focusing on tactics to make your rollout smooth and successful.
“Today, no company is safe from the everchanging threat landscape.” In fact, businesses are frequently exposed to new software bugs and vulnerabilities. And while evidence suggests that organisational responses are not just predicated on prevention, the key is how quickly we react to an event or breach – and thus reduce the amount of dwell time of potential cyber criminals.
This SANS product review will focus on the LogRhythm 7.2 Threat Lifecycle Management Platform and will focus on specifically:
• Ease of use
• Scalability and performance across large, distributed data sets
• Host-based policies and configuration capabilities
• Rapid searching, analysis and incident correlation
• Case management tools that can help security operations teams operate more effectively
In this paper, we’ll look at some of the key principles of the GDPR, what those principles mean for security and compliance teams and how you can prepare your organisation for the 2018 deadline. Make no mistake: The GDPR will require organisations that collect and process EU citizen data to undertake major operational reforms. The GDPR is a huge body of legislation, so this paper will focus on some specific areas where security, communications and compliance specialists will need to prepare.
As uncertainties — cybersecurity and otherwise — swim around us with increased velocity and frequency, it’s always helpful to hear directly from security leaders in the trenches of our industry. These first-hand accounts have the unique ability to shed light on the challenges security professionals and their teams face nearly every day of their work lives. That’s precisely what this “2018 Cybersecurity: Perceptions & Practices” benchmark survey accomplishes. It provides insights into the state of the cybersecurity practice of 751 mid- to large-sized organisations in the United States, United Kingdom, and AsiaPacific regions.
The primary reason for the popularity of the traditional branch office WAN architecture is that until recently there hadn’t been a fundamentally new WAN technology or architecture introduced into the marketplace since the introduction of MPLS almost twenty years ago. That situation began to change a couple of years ago with the introduction of a new class of WAN solutions that takes a software-centric approach to providing WAN products and services. This new class of solutions is typically referred to as a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). The large and growing interest in SD-WANs was discussed in a report by Transparency Market Research. According to that report, the global SD-WAN market will expand at a 51.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. Rising at this rate, the market will likely become worth US$34.35 billion by 2025.
A majority of IT organizations are experiencing significant changes that impact the requirements for their distributed branch networks. Mobility, cloud-based applications, and Internet of Things (IoT) are altering traffic flows and increasing bandwidth requirements. Employees and guests expect Internet connectivity, which means that employee-facing and IoT devices need reliable, low latency access to their data and applications, and must be securely on-boarded as they interact with centralized services. IT organizations do not have the level of control they once did with traditional architectures, and now face increasing pressure to support these new initiatives even as budget and resources remain lean.
Microsoft and Aruba have teamed to leverage Azure IoT capabilities and Aruba’s Analytics and Location Engine to gather, harvest, and analyze real-time contextual information. The solution quickly identifies behavioral changes and trends leveraging Wi-Fi network infrastructure already in use.
This IDC study represents the vendor assessment model called the IDC MarketScape. This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's chances for present and future success worldwide. This study assesses the capability and business strategy of 11 enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) vendors. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing enterprise WLAN solutions, for both the short and long terms. As the enterprise WLAN market is highly competitive and relatively mature, all vendors performed reasonably well in this study.
