Take The Time To Train Your Tools
- Security automation speeds incident detection and response, and it leverages precious security personnel. However,
implementing effective security automation is not as easy as simply buying and installing the right tools.
- Doing the extra work of building your own rule sets is a necessary step for the tool to deliver the kind of information that security analysts need so they can focus on deeper issues.
“The question is how quickly you identify and overcome
a breach with as little damage as possible.”
In today’s threat environment, uniform security-management tools that consolidate logs, monitored data, and correlation analysis into a threat-management dashboard have become essential to an effective cybersecurity practice. “That’s what we do,” says Rebecca Wynn, senior director of information security at Matrix Medical Network. “It’s no longer a matter of whether you’re going to be breached. It’s happening. The question is how quickly you identify and overcome it with as little damage as possible. That’s a whole different mindset.”
