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

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?

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
