Need for SOC Automation: The Security Promise
Suparna Goswami – Associate Editor, ISMG / Huzefa Motiwala, Director, Systems Engineering, India & SAARC, Palo Alto Networks
Expectations from cybersecurity technologies have changed as enterprises are struggling to keep their hybrid workforce secure. The traditional SOC is not sufficient in responding to threats in the current context where the cybersecurity expectations have changed.
Long being blamed for alert fatigue, a traditional SOC model lacks visibility, has high dependency on human capital and has failed to keep pace with sophisticated attacks.
With security teams unable to keep pace with volume of alerts, they are always in a fire-fighting mode with little time left for threat hunting. There is a huge time spent in repetitive tasks and there are too many manual processes, making incident responses ad hoc.
As a CISO do you think your existing SOC is able to detect alerts in real time? Does it gather enough threat intelligence data that you can put to use? Does it facilitate defense against APTs and enhance monitoring function?
By automating repetitive tasks, it greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to address and resolve attacks. But, how does one go about automating their SOC? Which parts of SOC are best suited for automation?
If you’re looking for answers to these questions, then please join this exclusive executive roundtable on Need for SOC Automation: The Security Promise.
Guided by insights from Huzefa Motiwala, Director System Engineering, India and SAARC, Palo Alto Networks, this invitation-only forum will also draw upon the experiences of the attendees. Participants will discuss their expectations from SOC.
Among the discussion topics:
- Challenges with existing SOC structure;
- What does it mean to automate SOC;
- How and where to begin the process of automating SOC ;
You’ll have the opportunity to discuss vital issues around incident response with a handful of senior executives and market leaders in an informal, virtual setting, from which you will emerge with new strategies, solutions and relationships you can immediately put to work.
