You may have heard about the idea of shifting left in security: As developers move more to the cloud, security professionals are looking more upstream — or left — toward where the development processes are initiated. As you progress from development to QA and then production (moving right), there is more underlying thinking about end-to-end security.
As the volume of cyberattacks grows, security analysts have become overwhelmed. To address this issue, developers are showing more interest in using machine learning (ML) to automate threat-hunting. Today, ML is showing increasing promise with the advent of Big Data because the quality of information from which ML can learn is improving. However, there is much more to be done.
Two-way communication is essential for leaders and their teams. Team members want to feel like they have a say in the direction of the team and how that relates to the overall direction of the company. Without two-way communications, the communications feel dictatorial and not team-oriented. While some don’t care or want to understand the big picture, team members want to know they make a difference.
MDR (managed detection and response)-as-a-Service in short is advanced threat detection and response. Think of a multi-faceted attack throughout the kill chain, something most midsize companies struggle with, and most of them have no protection in place whatsoever. With attacks increasing in sophistication, MDR is timely.
