Focusing the SOC on Detection and Response
Threat Intelligence is the Foundation and Lifeblood of the Security Operations Center
We all know the security industry mantra: it’s not a matter of if, but when and how we’ll be attacked. The global pandemic has done nothing to change this. In fact, it has reinforced it. Recent reports indicate a rise in cyberattacks on schools and at the end of October a joint advisory from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) warned of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers. A similar alert was issued a few months earlier for companies in critical infrastructure sectors.
