Why your business needs a Security operations centre in the Current IT Threat Landscape

July 8, 2019

Securing data is essential to your company’s longevity. Breaches can be costly in many ways from actual monetary losses to reputation smears. One way to protect your organisation is with a SOC (Security Operations Centre). A SOC is a team and facility which are dedicated to the prevention, detection, assessment, and response to cybersecurity threats and incidents, and also to fulfilling regulatory compliance.

Consider a 24/7 perimeter to thwart cyberattacks and keep data safe. Putting a SOC in place can offer you protection from various threats. Here are seven reasons why you should consider it:

Proactive Detection

Without proactive detection, breaches can go unnoticed for days, weeks, or even months. You’ll know as quickly as possible that an incident has occurred and can go about remediating it immediately.

Threat Awareness

Being fully aware of the threats around your data can allow you to adjust defences before an attack occurs.

Vulnerability Management

Is your network vulnerable? With a SOC, you’ll have clear insights into this question. By identifying vulnerabilities, you can execute new protocols and systems to leave you less exposed.

Hardware and Software Asset Awareness

Know exactly what hardware and software assets are running on your network and take this knowledge to understand any new or developing threats. This awareness also allows you to ensure that these assets are up-to-date and not vulnerable.

Log Management

Should an incident or breach occur, log management will allow you to do the forensics necessary to investigate what happened and why.

Competitive Advantage

By having a SOC in place, you are likely to stand out from your competitors. Your customers and industry have grown much more technologically savvy, and they understand the threat landscape. With a SOC in place, your buyers can have much more peace of mind in choosing to do business with you, versus a similar provider that doesn’t have such a robust cybersecurity program.

You’ve spent a lifetime working hard to get where you are. You earned every penny and every client. Why risk losing it all?
