We recently ran two CISO Virtual Roundtables in India and South East Asia for Recorded Future. Our moderator Gavin Reid – CISO – Recorded Future started with the below content.
Underscore the acute need for a shift toward a security intelligence approach to help security teams amplify and streamline efforts while accelerating risk reduction. This is particularly true for the security operations center (SOC), which is often an organization’s first line of defense against cyber threats.
With an intelligence-driven approach to security operations, enriched by automation through the algorithm, information can become readily available to SOC team for cyber intelligence collection and analysis, allowing them to apply threat intelligence to gain context on alerts, intelligently prioritize risk, sort out real alerts from false positives, and quickly determine the best course of remedial action.
Similarly, to reduce response times, incident response teams must become less reactive. Two areas where a security intelligence approach can be especially helpful are the identification of probable threats and prioritization. Security intelligence provides incident response teams with exactly the actionable insights they need to make faster, better decisions while holding back the tide of irrelevant and unreliable alerts that typically make their job so difficult.
