Are we able to detect an attack? And if so, are we able to handle such an attack?
Common challenges that many companies suffer are often related to budget. Why is that?
While the common phrase is “people, process & technology”, the reality at the end of the day is that often the budget dictates the options – at least until an incident occurs!
We do see a challenge with companies having difficulties hiring staff with the correct skillset to handle sophisticated cyber threats. There is still a talent shortage, so utilising existing staff would be an option. However, it takes a lot of time and therefore poses an additional cost to lift up those resources to the needed skillset and allow them to gain the experience required.
Some companies might not have a department able to handle the threat detection-related activities, such as alert monitoring, triage and incident response. While other companies might have a department with IT security staff, but not the required skillsets to keep it in-house.
Keeping up with all the technologies and how to adapt them into the detection capability can be a challenge as it will require continuous training which again adds to the costs of having the service.
Deloitte offers an 8x5 or 24x7 monitoring and analytics of security events, including triage, incident escalation, tailored SIEM content development for client and industry-specific use cases and log source integration.
Deloitte’s Threat Intelligence provides threat monitoring and analysis that provides a range of services which addresses the above listed challenges many companies have.
