Identify the right tools for your security framework
Security leaders around the globe will spend $124 billion this year in security solutions. Driven by a decade of “tools mania” and fear-motivated sales presentations, organizations find themselves in a dilemma – “I’ve bought numerous security solutions, but which of them are actually solving my business problems and reducing my risk exposure?”
Organizations are looking for an integrated security architecture – something innovative that relies on complementary solutions that work together, rather than siloed point solutions. This shift toward security transformation needs to be guided by prudent financial investments with clearly-defined business outcomes. There’s no longer room for “black magic ROI” on the backend, used to justify unrealistic notions of absolute security.
Enough with the tool sprawl! Security tools must be re-evaluated against industry standard to ensure the financial investment produces the right outcomes – pervasive real-time visibility, improved operational efficient and a mature cybersecurity program.
WWT’s Security Tools Rationalization Workshop is an on-site event for your security and operation teams that lasts 4-8 hours. Security tools will be evaluated against the NIST Cyber Security Framework. Our subject matter experts will assess whether your organization has the pervasive enterprise visibility, granular security control and rapid response capabilities required to deliver secure business outcomes (Commercial) and mission success (Federal).
Areas of focus include:
- Devices: Workstations, servers, mobile devices, IoT;
- Applications: Software, interactions and application flows on devices;
- Network: Software, interactions and application flows on devices;
- Data: Information residing on, traveling through or processed by the resources above;
- Users: The users (identities) using the resources listed above.
Our Security Architects will analyze your current tools portfolio to identify security gaps, areas of over-investment and obsolete tools that can be decommissioned. We will also work with your team to develop a customized list of recommendations and next steps to improve your organization’s security posture.
Following the workshop, WWT will provide a workshop debrief package which will include a summary of desired business outcomes, current state and challenges as well as recommendations on next steps.
