Detection and response in post covid-19 world

26th November 2020 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm BST
How are you managing your security in the Covid world and looking at the SOC from the remote side?

The forced disruption from COVID-19 to business and IT has brought about complex and pervasive cybersecurity challenges, where many erstwhile strategies are quickly proving ineffective. Organization networks have expanded overnight to accommodate a remote workforce dialling in from living rooms, and the attack surface has grown exponentially in tandem.

As we step into the new decade amid this chaos, noise, and disruption, what is the right security strategy to address this new ‘normal’ that is emerging?

The need for non-isolated and distributed security is today’s reality, and managed detection and response or MDR is an approach that can help address this acute need for visibility and remediation across the enterprise, and orchestrate across endpoints, and the extended attack surface. And security goes beyond just plugging in a box. Beyond technology what needs to happen on the governance and risk management aspect of cybersecurity?
