Align Threat Protection Beyond The SOC

As increasingly digital business operations collide with an advancing threat landscape, organizations struggle not only to detect sophisticated cyber threats, but also to understand the real business risk they pose—and ultimately to coordinate the response across the business, from the SOC to the boardroom. Organizations need to evolve to stay ahead of risk at the growing intersection between cyber threats and increasingly digitized business operations. 

Proactively preparing for digital risk and advancing the organization’s ability to coordinate starts with ensuring security teams have the advanced tools to quickly and accurately detect threats. Once detected, cyber threats and their risks must be mitigated through an orchestrated and automated response that extends beyond security controls into risk treatment.

Can your organization respond effectively to a cyber attack?

Today’s Typical Approach To Cyber Risk

  • Advancing threat visibility and analytics to the SOC
  • Establishing business impact and risk-based incident response workflows
  • Applying security controls (MFA/IAM) to high risk assets/users

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Extended business impact of cyber threats as more operations become digital
  • Expanded attack surface through proliferation of endpoints (OT, IoT)
  • Complex web of data, people and processes creates an explosion of identities and business/technology interdependencies

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Integrate workflows across SOC and business functions
  • Extend SIEM visibility into IoT, OT and cloud assets
  • Adopt integrated risk management with broad integrations for risk identification and treatment

Ensure Ecosystem Risks Don’t Outweigh The Benefits

A fundamental driver of digital transformation is the pressure many organizations face to broaden and optimize their supply chains by leveraging an extended ecosystem of business partners. By taking advantage of partners' digital capabilities, organizations become part of an ecosystem for innovation and delivery that enables them to grow and compete more effectively in their markets. 

However, these expansive, interconnected relationships can lead to inherited risks—including litigation, compliance violations, data breaches, fraud and theft, business interruption, reputational damage, and the failure to meet strategic objectives. These new and growing risks drive the need for more efficient governance because traditional methods are not scalable for growing third-party ecosystems. 

How well prepared is your organization to manage third-party risk?

Today’s Typical Approach To Ecosystem Risk

  • Performing due diligence to identify types and amount of risk third parties pose
  • Implementing basic treatments to keep risk at acceptable levels
  • Knowing what digital channels third parties can access 

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Growth of risk related to third parties and extended dependency to fourth parties
  • Limited visibility into third-party access to systems
  • Intense business impact resulting from ecosystem vulnerabilities and incidents

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Adopt a programmatic approach to continuously catalog, assess, evaluate, treat and monitor third-party risk
  • Govern access in conjunction with dynamic third-party lifecycles 
  • Monitor online activity for threats introduced by external sources

Meet Workforce Expectations While Managing New  Risks

The dynamic workforce has been a driving force behind the consumerization of IT and digitization of business. Organizations are rapidly transforming operations by connecting everything digitally via cloud, mobile and IoT technologies, so people (and things) can connect to information and resources anytime, from anywhere, with as little friction as possible.

As the workforce keeps growing and changing to include more people—traditional employees, temporary workers, independent contractors—in more places, so does the challenge of providing access to the resources they need while keeping those resources secure. Successfully managing this challenge requires a comprehensive set of authentication, authorization and continuous monitoring capabilities that align with a view of business risk as dynamic as the workforce itself.

Assess your organization's ability to address dynamic workforce risk

Today’s Typical Approach To Managing Workforce Risk

  • Leveraging strong authentication to ensure users requesting access are who they say 
  • Applying two-factor authentication that supports remote and privileged access 
  • Speeding onboarding to provide users with the access they need

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Rapid expansion through contractors, seasonal employees, M&A 
  • Workload optimization complicates ensuring proper levels of access to key environments 
  • Increased business criticality drives rapid changes to risk-based determination of identity controls

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Enrich log, network and endpoint data with access and authentication data
  • Use UEBA to establish baseline access patterns and identify atypical behaviors
  • Automate and orchestrate incident responses

Offloading Workloads To The Cloud Doesn’t Offload Risk

Rapid adoption of cloud computing is at the heart of most organizations’ digital transformation strategies. Many have embraced a cloud strategy that relies on a combination of public, private and hybrid cloud resources for workload optimization. Leveraging this dynamic extended environment can dramatically improve speed and efficiency. But without proper governance, using these services can make it difficult to coordinate the management of security, privacy, compliance and resiliency risks.

As organizations embark on their journey to move processes and technologies to the cloud, they will benefit from viewing the cloud not as a separate set of operations to be secured and governed independently—but as an extension of their existing security infrastructure and governance models.

What new risks are hiding in your cloud strategy?

Today’s Typical Approach To Migitating Cloud Risks

  • Performing vendor security and resiliency assessments and ensuring appropriate SLAs
  • Securing cloud-based resources with proper controls for access, authentication and authorization
  • Assessing compliance implications of moving workloads to the cloud

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Lack of visibility at application level, resulting in security blind spots
  • Inability to correlate security events across environments
  • Multi-cloud strategies that add complexity to compliance and business continuity objectives

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Gain cloud visibility for comprehensive threat detection and response
  • Incorporate cloud providers into integrated third-party risk management 
  • Implement and manage the proper access controls, governance and authentication to cloud services

Meet Regulatory Demands While Reducing Risk And Cost

Traditional compliance functions are buckling under the weight of global regulations designed to drive greater accountability for organizational risk, including digital risks like security and data privacy. In this environment, the critical role of compliance can’t be sustained with a check-the-box approach. 

Activities associated with digital transformation, such as IT modernization efforts or the creation of new platforms for interacting with customers, introduce compliance considerations that manifest more quickly and with more inherent risk. While regulations continue to rapidly change, a risk-based approach to compliance management is needed to keep pace with the increasing complexity of digital business.

Modernize Your Compliance Program
Struggling to modernize your compliance function?

Today’s Typical Approach To Compliance Management

  • Documenting regulatory obligations and understanding their impact on operations 
  • Recording compliance controls and procedures, and capturing and remediating control deficiencies
  • Periodically testing ongoing effectiveness of controls and remediating as necessary

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Acceleration of regulatory compliance risk, from incident to impact to notification
  • Expanded digital consumer engagement drives heightened requirements around data privacy and use
  • Increased technology interdependencies across compliance requirements 

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Implement a business-driven compliance management strategy that aligns resources with prioritized risks
  • Use an integrated platform for continuous risk management 
  • Automate processes for capturing changes in regulations and related business activity 

Unlock The Full Benefits Of Extended Automation

As organizations extend IoT, operational technology and other digital technologies into manual or analog business operations, they create new possibilities for automating processes to drive innovation and efficiency. But in adopting these emerging technologies, they trade traditional risks of operational failures (errors, mistakes, disruptions, etc.) for a new wave of often unforeseen risks. This shift may require changes in how to identify, assess, treat or monitor operational risk. 

Operational risk is a familiar concept for most organizations, especially those that have processes in place to support business activities. Automation doesn’t create operational risk where there was none before. But it does introduce new kinds of risk, as well as transforming existing operational risk.

  • Integrate digital risk management, targeting projects that rely on new technologies 

Prepare Your Organization To Avoid Disruption

Organizations today must deal with a wide range of potential disruptions and crises—from massive data breaches to natural disasters to public relations nightmares. Many organizations struggle to respond effectively to business disruption, largely because their recovery efforts are siloed and narrowly focused. 

These challenges will intensify as organizations progress with digital transformation. Increased digitization of day-to-day operations makes organizations more vulnerable to disruptions like cyber attacks, network downtime and other technology failures. At the same time, digitization heightens expectations of 24x7 availability, while social media and increased compliance requirements invite intense scrutiny of even the smallest disruption. These trends make resiliency a greater priority than ever.

Coordinate Business Resiliency
How quickly can your organization recover from disruption?

Today’s Typical Approach To Business Continuity

  • Mapping interdependencies between business processes, technologies and infrastructure
  • Performing business impact analyses to prioritize protection and recovery strategies 
  • Documenting and testing recovery plans for business operations and IT systems

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Dramatic changes in how business processes link with expanded technology use
  • Increased risk of DDoS and other "availability attacks" as business processes extend to the internet
  • Increased pressure to maintain business functionality 24x7

Transforming To Manage Digital Risk

  • Integrate resiliency risk management with operational and enterprise risk management 
  • Align business resiliency, IT disaster recovery, crisis management and security priorities
  • Focus on preventive measures that build in resiliency

Ensure New Uses Of Data Don’t Open New Exposure

Organizations today are generating and managing more data than ever, lending credence to the idea that data is the fuel driving digital transformation. Ambitious digital initiatives create tremendous challenges not only in coping with the scale and scope of data, but also in understanding the value of different types of data and the protections required to manage data risk. 

Unfortunately, in most organizations, the pace of expanded collection and use of data is moving faster than the ability of governance to keep up. As the value of data to the business increases, so does the risk posed by poor governance and security policy. In response to the resulting security incidents, regulators are turning up the heat and enacting expanded compliance requirements.

Evolve Data Governance & Privacy
Are your organization’s data privacy practices in line with consumers’ expectations?

Today’s Typical Approach To Data Governance

  • Determining what data is important, where it is located and how it is used
  • Demonstrating compliance with a check-the-box approach
  • Focusing on internal controls without understanding business risk of compliance obligations

Disruption Caused By Digital Transformation

  • Data governance and security policies not keeping pace with evolving use of data
  • Data-driven business models adding to regulatory demands
  • Governance shortcomings revealed by growing interdependencies between business and data
