Security Operations Maturity Model

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, your cybersecurity efforts must follow suit. With your security operations center (SOC) at the core of your offense against threats, you must ensure that it can handle anything that comes its way. To be effective, you need to mature your SOC to stop threats early — before damage occurs. Whether your SOC is a virtual team of two to three or a 24x7 operation, maturing your security operations capabilities will help you achieve a faster mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to cyberthreats. This white paper explores LogRhythm’s Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM), which explains how to measure the effectiveness of your security operations. Through the model, you can learn how to mature your security operations capabilities, improving your resilience to cyberthreats.

Fortinet Security Fabric Enables Digital Innovation

whitePaper | February 5, 2020

Organizations are rapidly adopting digital innovation (DI) initiatives to accelerate their businesses, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide better customer experiences. Common initiatives involve moving applications and workflows to the cloud, deploying Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices on the corporate network, and expanding the organization’s footprint to new branch locations. With this evolving infrastructure also come security risks. Organizations must cope with growing attack surfaces, advanced threats, increased infrastructure complexity, and an expanding regulatory landscape. To accomplish their desired DI outcomes while effectively managing risks and minimizing complexities, organizations need to adopt a cybersecurity platform that provides visibility across their environment and a means to manage both security and network operations easily.
