What happens when something is detected? Can you identify scope and impact, and take action in minutes? Fast reaction time, with the right actions, is critical. With thousands of alerts a day from just one firewall, it’s easy to miss warning signals of threats in action. Being prepared means training across the organization to create a culture of shared security responsibility, and having security leadership that can provide decisive action when it matters. You can't get through life without a few cuts, but prompt first aid can make a world of difference so that minor issues do not become out of control incidents.
Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) is an approach where the layered security technologies allow an organization to identify threats from multiple perspectives. The long-term benefit occurs when automated responses to low-level security events are automated. Industries and government agencies with highly classified or sensitive data now allow automated disconnection from network data stores and isolation of systems when critical threats are detected.
