There isn’t a week that goes by that we don’t read about a company that has been impacted by a cyber security breach. Security threats have become a common place in today’s world and most companies and IT teams are struggling to keep pace.
As most organisations try to keep up with the rapid re-development of applications, shifting to DevOps and migrating to the cloud, security can often be overlooked. According to a study carried out by the Ponemon Institute (2018), 77% of companies surveyed have no formal response plan against cyber-attacks and 65% reported the severity of attacks had dramatically increased. One of the major barriers of cyber resilience reported was the lack of financial investment and the implementation critical security solutions to form a formal cybersecurity incident response plan. Investment into security technology is something that companies can no longer avoid.
The newly introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means that every organisation is accountable for implementing cybersecurity technology to prevent data breaches. In the event of a breach, companies can no longer just scratch their heads and ask, “how did this happen to us”? With significant penalties at stake and damage to your brand and reputation, a robust incident response plan is critical, especially with the strict data privacy regulations now in effect.
Let’s say that your IT team can identify advanced threats and they are able to see the where the data is being hacked. They still haven’t stopped the threats from taking place. There may be too many security systems and manual processes for a rapid response across detection and eradication. Finding threats is only effective if you can quickly fight back without it slowing down your business.
