In today’s era where almost all the businesses either are or aspires to be online in order to extend their reach and grow their business exponentially, protecting their personal data is extremely essential.
Cyber Security is the protection of electronic data and software from theft and/or damage from internal and external sources. It takes years of hard work and sweat for an organization to earn a reputation in the market and only a few minutes of a cyber incident to ruin it.
Security consists of physical security and cybersecurity in computing context. Enterprises all over the world use both physical and cyber security to protect against unauthorized access of their computerized systems and data centres.
Information security is designed to maintain the integrity, confidentiality and availability of data. Security breaches needs to be managed through vigilant monitoring and reinforcement of security aspects of application, network, data, endpoint at a perimeter level.
So how do you cover Cyber Security incidents and
contain the breaches without causing major damages?
First and foremost step is to successfully detect the breach immediately. Many organizations rely on Security Operations Centre (SOC) and consider it as a valuable resource for detecting cyber security incidents.
Companies usually focus on developing security strategies by designing security architectures or by implementing protective measures. But with the implementation of SOC (Security Operations Centre), ongoing operational components of enterprise information security can be monitored and managed by a single department.
A Security Analyst team in the SOC (Security Operations Centre) department can detect, analyze, respond, report and prevent Cyber Security incidents. Other members of the SOC (Security Operations Centre) team can manage to get cryptanalysis, forensic analysis and malware reverse engineering to examine the incidents and fix the breaches in the system to prevent future glitches.
Security risks are constantly evolving with hackers constantly finding new ways to breach data. Traditional approach pays attention on critical resources and defends it against the biggest known threat based on past experiences and market research. However, this leaves other components vulnerable and defenseless against less dangerous risks. Cyber Security needs constant diligence and regular upgradations on a regular basis to match with the latest crisis in the ecosystem.
Today, the world is connected with the internet, and we are all uploading our precious data on it, be it personal data or of an organization through various platforms. Hence, protecting the internet from hackers and unauthorized users trying to disrupt a company or committing espionage is vital for an enterprises’ ability to function successfully for a long period of time.
