You send messages frequently. Text, chat and email: all day, every day. Something so commonplace risks complacency and developing bad habits. Plus, many people won’t give a second thought to cranking out a quick message, but when it comes to writing something you know you have to write – and which will have a wide audience – your tendency may be to freeze up (and break out into a cold sweat).

It is one of the hottest buzzwords in the cybersecurity landscape not named zero trust. DevSecOps has grown in prominence as more organizations adopt a cloud-native approach to build and deploy applications faster, improve scalability and reliability, and emphasize continuous improvement.

The ransomware racket has grown so sophisticated, even beginners can be successful at it. How’s that for a mind screw? Because the threat has reached epic proportions – so much so that the U.S. is urgently convening an international summit with the sole purpose of addressing ransomware – there is no shortage of blogs and articles about how you should approach the risk. But most simply scratch the surface. Security operations professionals require something more.

The pandemic has changed a lot of things, but one of its largest legacies will be its impact on the workplace. Not surprisingly, security in the workplace is changing too.

Nowadays you don’t need to be reminded (but we will anyway) that between ransomware, phishing, supply-chain attacks and more, the threat landscape is organized, advanced and well funded. How are defenders responding? At a disadvantage. You are facing an attack surface ballooning from digital transformation and pandemic-induced remote workforce risks, a skills shortage not improving and disparate security systems that are uncooperative. The fight is not lost, thankfully.

Research shows that fostering greater diversity and inclusion is beneficial to organizations, both from a security standpoint as well as corporate growth and profitability. More diverse organizations outperform their peers financially and report higher levels of revenue from innovation. Greater diversity and inclusion also help improve employee retention.

One question that we get asked a lot is “Is there a Gartner Magic Quadrant for SOAR?” The short answer is “not yet.” The most detailed research Gartner has released in the SOAR space is the Gartner Market Guide for SOAR (available for free download from Siemplify). And, while Gartner analysts haven’t rated SOAR vendors yet, Gartner users certainly have. You can head over to Gartner Peer Insights to read some user reviews on the various SOAR platforms.

Have you ever noticed trees that are marked with spray paint? Now, I’m no tree spray paint marking expert, but it’s my understanding that different colors or symbols can signify different things, such as trees that need to be removed, are damaged but may survive, need to be treated, or are a danger to public utilities.

Combining security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) is a no-brainer. CrowdStrike has been the greatest evangelist of the 1-10-60 security benchmark (that’s one minute to detect a breach, 10 minutes to triage it, and 60 minutes to contain it), and with most companies falling considerably short of this benchmark, automation and orchestration can bring you that much closer.

Today we are joined by Axel Schulz, who, like a few others who have graced the “Sitdown With a SOC Star” series space, did not enter the security operations field in a traditional way. And he wants to scream that fact from the rooftops, as it just may encourage others to not overthink their previous experience and eventually help close the incontrovertible talent deficit facing the industry. He’s also fanatic about threat detection & response, playbooks and bicycling.

Some things are just better together. Peanut butter and jelly. Beavis and Butthead. Security orchestration, automation & response (SOAR) and threat intelligence (TIP) platforms. But don’t settle for a good SOAR with a basic TIP, or a good TIP with a basic SOAR. Siemplify ThreatFuse, combines best-in-class SOAR and best-in-class TIP.

Bloggers and social media pundits are full of grandiose proclamations and claims about security operations. SIEM is dead. The only way to run a SOC is to outsource. Everything is encrypted, so don’t bother with network monitoring. Data collection only requires one schema. Automation will eliminate the need for all humans in the SOC. The list goes on.

In the fourth and final part, the pair discusses the role of SOAR for service providers, how they can evaluate their own success, and what selection criteria should look like for end-users shopping for an MSSP – especially in the era of more demanding customers and the death of the “black-box” MSSP model.

Security operations is at a critical juncture. Years of digital modernization, adversarial advancement and enduring talent deficits have given rise to an untenable situation, only further compounded by the mayhem waged by a worldwide pandemic. The good news is the circumstance is not unsolvable. It only requires a rejiggering of familiar ingredients: your people, your processes and your technology - and layering on a fresh, open-minded approach, untethered to the old way of doing SecOps.

Business guru Peter Drucker is famous for saying that you can't manage what you don't measure, and those words ring especially true in the security operations center (SOC). The SOC is home to great responsibility to the business, as it sits as ground zero for threat detection and response. But it also can be unwieldy due to a number of challenges, including an overreliance on manual processes, disparate sources of information and intelligence, and a lack of skills and people power to handle all the alerts and cases coming through.

While opportunity has never looked brighter for MSSPs, they are still under obligation to solve the very security challenges so many enterprises and SMBs count on them for, all while recognizing that each client environment requires unique attention. This is no easy feat, especially as competition grows and customer expectations become more exacting.

One of the big reasons security operations centers excel at what they do is because they are a centralized unit charged with monitoring, assessing and addressing activity across a company's IT infrastructure. But with many SOCs shifting to remote arrangements, this cohesion has come undone. Yet, you and your team must charge on, and the good news is you can overcome any bumpy adjustment period by ensuring you have all of your bases covered.

No business is immune from digital attacks, making the ability to detect and respond to cyber incidents more important than ever. And that's where security operations come in to play. Because they are built around monitoring, analysis and triage, SecOps have become the centerpiece of an organization's security program.
