Cyber Situational Awareness for Enterprises
Today’s business environment is complex enough without compliance and security concerns. Tools to address these concerns are readily available, but most enterprises lack the experience to implement an effective situational security strategy. The management’s capabilities are stretched, and in some cases, overloaded.
Enterprises face a set of seemingly conflicting factors, such as mobility of the workforce, growing regulatory schemes, and virtual and cloud infrastructures. In addition, technical drivers, such as cloud computing, virtualization, proliferation of endpoints add further complexity. Such multi-dimensional complexity is intimidating even with knowledgeable help!
Mission-critical capabilities, such as mobility and outsourcing, are coming on the scene as the enterprise adopts sophisticated new technologies. Perversely, these applications attract hazards and cyber threats, such as advanced persistent threats (APT)2, which methodically harvest an enterprise’s sensitive, i.e., custodial and proprietary, data.
Today’s enterprise faces the challenge of managing these complex factors. The optimal response for cybersecurity situational awareness is in enterprise security architecture, Process and People, and Technology (AP2T). Acquiring an adaptive business security architecture is the realistic response to cyber threats.
For compliance and enterprise security, CSC’s operational Security Operations Center (SOC) uses CSC’s strategic security stack, relies on the Enterprise Security Architecture (ESA), and achieves situational awareness against cyber threats.
