Topic : The New Normal
The boundaries are blurred, complexity is everywhere and expertise is at a premium. Over thirty screens rule the tiny gateway of the flow of critical, business impacting information about your environment both inbound and outbound. Your network, systems, infrastructure, and security teams are ‘familiar’ with each other, but somewhat distrustful preferring their own methods of ‘getting things done’ yet they all have responsibility for protecting the most critical elements of the business – information. This is not isolated. It is the new normal. Increasingly companies recognize that the goal is mitigation and continuous assessment, but are short handed and under or wrong tooled. How can things be turned around in a way that makes rational sense for companies to protect against such sophisticated exploits as recent headlines demonstrate? A good place to start is integration and automation. Not just buzzwords but a real strategy for coping with emerging threats. Quite literally, turning the flow of information across your environment into a data mining engine.
