Buying IR tools and creating an effective response team
Many security teams have come to the unfortunate conclusion that our preventive approaches to security, and the controls that block threats to our IT assets, just won't work 100% of the time.
It's only a matter of time until an employee clicks on a link or is socially engineered, a piece of unknown malware infects our systems, or a zero-day exploit is used to target us. What then?
For large organizations, the number of alerts our detection tools generate is becoming overwhelming, and even with advanced analytics platforms that help sift through the noise, we're drowning in manual tasks and processes that take up valuable time -- time that could be better spent investigating and responding to unusual activity in the environment.
Sadly, we're learning the hard way that people don't scale well, and no one has the budget for an unlimited headcount. The way out? Incident response (IR) tools and methods that automate the process.
