Best practices for threat management
by Mike Horn - CEO at NetCitadel - Monday, 14 October 2013.
Threat management is a critical process that involves detection, investigation, analysis, and enforcement, with human involvement at the heart of the overall process. IT security staff and their teams are ultimately responsible for managing, reacting and securing corporate networks, but with the scale and complexity of threats, investigations, and multi-vendor enforcement devices, there are many opportunities for delay and human error.
With smart best practices and automation in place, IT security teams save time and reduce risk with a solid, end-to-end threat management and response process. With that in place, the gap between threat detection and enforcement can be closed, and companies have a better chance at remaining secure by reacting quickly when there is an attack.
