Security Operations: Has managing security tools become unmanageable?
As long as there has been IT security practices, there has been challenges that make the job of securing data more difficult. Not all these challenges come from the latest “zero-day” threat or phishing campaigns. Some are created by the business itself. With the boom of security products and organizations buying these tools across their network, they have inadvertently produced the latest security challenge organizations are facing today.
This challenge is securely focused around “Security Operations”, and the nearly impossible task of efficiently managing the complex security environments which were brought into an organization from point solution mentality. Couple the complex nature of today’s security infrastructure with the lack of certified engineers and you are left with an unmaintainable task of managing the very tools that were purchased to protect you. This wide spread issue impacts the largest organizations down to SMB’s.
What can be done to streamline and manage this process? Join SMP’s session and find out how organizations can look at security operations in a new light.
