Security - Virtual Roundtable

Effective threat management: Evolving from reactive to proactive

15th September 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm EST
How can we better interconnect the threat management functions of visibility, detection, investigation and response to greatly improve our abilities to detect attacks and orchestrate an effective, timely response.

A Meet the Boss Roundtable in partnership with IBM Security

Once a security strategy is defined and all appropriate tools and controls are in place, effective, coordinated threat management within that environment is clearly critical, but still remains a major challenge.

Detecting, investigating and responding to attacks within a fragmented patchwork of disparate tools, data sources and infrastructure elements is often still a disjointed “swivel chair” based process. Many organizations expend vast resources on integrating and automating some elements, while often collecting vast amounts of data, but still struggle to apply appropriate, timely analytics and orchestrate an effective response if an attack or vulnerability is identified. Add cloud based services to the mix and the problem is further exacerbated and overall threat management efficacy can decline even further.

Join IBM and a group of industry experts to discuss how organizations can evolve from this largely reactive approach towards a more open, integrated, systematic and proactive set of capabilities, and get far more value and effectiveness from both their security teams and tools.
