Intelligence-Driven Modern SOC: A Future-ready Outfit

A Platform For Collaboration

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive OpenGovLive! Virtual Insight aimed at imparting knowledge on how the SOC team
is always powered on and prepared to outsmart, withstand, and remediate against cyberthreats.

Transforming your Security Operations Centre from an “incident-driven” to an “intelligence-driven” modern enterprise

It is a known fact that the telecommunication industry frequently struggles with data breaches and other cybersecurity threats. With telecommunication companies having large customer data, it attracts complex and sophisticated cyberattacks to gain unauthorised access to their data. Mobile devices, for instance, provide a huge area of vulnerability, as do home routers and unsecure mobile apps.

It is also problematic that personal information often gets passed between multiple parties and organisations, some of which may have insufficient security practices.

If an attack were to occur on a major telecom provider infrastructure, the consequences would be far-reaching, and could potentially impact a whole country, with businesses, consumers and government agencies likely affected. Such an attack would have major ramifications for the telecom brand’s reputation and trust worthiness.

In the concrete, according to a recent report [1], the telecommunications industry is ranked among the worst in relation to responding to Domain Name System (DNS) attacks. 43% of the telecommunication organisations suffered from DNS-based malware in 2018, and the average time from discovery to containment took three days or more for 81% of the affected organisations.

With the ongoing shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for networking infrastructure and connectivity have spiked exponentially, which could increase security and infrastructure risks at the same time.
Attacks from malicious actors are not ceasing, which means telecommunication cybersecurity must remain a priority in 2020 and beyond. But, what, specifically, should the telecom institutions be doing to proactively protect themselves?
Leveraging actionable threat intelligence

Security Operation Centre (SOC) must be designed to embrace adaptive security features to become context-aware and intelligence-driven.

With the incorporation of threat intelligence which encompasses strategic, tactical, operational and technical use cases, it enables an effective and proactive strategy to detect and respond to advanced threats and targeted attacks including the abilities to predict cybersecurity threats or risks.
An intelligence-driven SOC will then be used to adapt and improve every aspect of security operations and management.
The question is – Does your SOC comprise of an organised team of security analysts and engineers. Can they detect, analyse, and respond to incidents, always working in lockstep with business managers to execute on the security strategy? Awesome!
We hope it’s not a few analysts who spend their days reactively responding to security issues with a variety of point tools at their fingertips?
Establishing SOC as a centre of excellence
Cyber threat intelligence has to be a key differentiator in your organisation’s cybersecurity strategy.
The current set of issues is that every organisation which has a SOC would be receiving some kind of threat intelligence either as a standard threat feed to the SIEM. But this does not in any way look at all the threat intelligence requirements of the organisation such as operational, tactical & strategic threat intelligence.

Since the current state of threat intelligence is not entirely understood, organisation tend to ignore the value of threat intelligence, especially of tailored threat intelligence specific to an organisation IT environment.

Thus, it is of great importance that organisations start leveraging threat intelligence in a far more robust manner to be able to PREDICT the next level of attacks, including Dark Web Monitoring & reporting capabilities.

Who Should Attend

We will be discussing:

  • Best approaches in threat hunting to proactively search for threats being undetected by traditional security
    systems like firewalls, IPS/IDS, SIEM, etc.
  • Establishing an incident response framework implemented to limit damage and reduce remediation costs
  • Learn the key aspects and building blocks of a modern and successful Security Operations Centre
  • Leverage technology to make the security more robust and cyber defences more powerful
  • Empower the modern SOC to efficiently and effectively detect and remediate threats
  • Execute the vulnerability management life cycle in line with the local and regional guidelines
  • Focus on timely detection of IT security incidents through correlating, analysing and threat hunting
  • Identify critical security operations metrics and implementing necessary improvements
