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.
Thailand has rapidly grown its digital economy and has made a concerted push towards technological innovation. As the technology evolves within the country, so has the threat of cyberattacks. Increasingly, federal, state and local governments are targets as hackers, organised criminals, foreign countries and others attempt to steal or manipulate sensitive data.
Cyberattacks often target government networks to gain access to sensitive personal information of citizens and employees, as well as proprietary software, strategic plans and other information. The challenge for any agency is to identify threats and vulnerabilities, invest in risk mitigation and continually assess and improve cybersecurity efforts.
Despite the high spike of demand in advanced cybersecurity technology with the roll out of the Cybersecurity Act, Personal Data Protection Act, and national ID scheme by the government of Thailand, the country is still facing with several chronic barriers such as, the lack of knowledge of process and technology, a shortage of trained personnel, and compatibility issue with legacy systems.
The Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) have reported that 39% of the cyber threats the government faced in 2018 were intrusion attempts, followed by online fraud (37%), intrusion (8%) and malware or malicious code (7%).
The attacks from malicious actors are not ceasing, which means the public sector must put cybersecurity as a priority in 2020 and beyond. But, what, specifically, should the public sector be doing to proactively protect themselves?
Security Operation Centre (SOC) must be designed to embrace adaptive security features to become context-aware and intelligence-driven.
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!
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.
