Response time plays a critical role in determining the severity and repercussions of a cybersecurity incident. The longer a threat goes undetected within an organization’s network, the more damage it can do and the more costly it will likely be to recover from. Unfortunately, security teams face a myriad of challenges that make rapid and effective incident response difficult.
Too Much Data, Not Enough Time
The first challenge security teams are grappling with is information overload and alert fatigue from the massive amount of inbound security alerts. Yet, many organizations are still deploying more security tools in the quest for better visibility and control. At the same time, the threat landscape continues to grow more challenging with greater volume, variety and velocity of attacks. Thus creating a vicious cycle leaving many security teams struggling in their attempts to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.
