Compliance, Security Monitoring and Incident Response

The ever-increasing world of cyber threats and the exploitation mechanisms utilized to deliver these threats continues to evolve on a daily basis.  These threats are becoming more targeted and impactful while continually adapting to evade the detection and prevention mechanisms in place to control the attack. Combined with the increase in number and types of technologies utilized in an enterprise infrastructure, this creates an environment where multiple front-doors exist for attackers to target and distribute their malicious payload.  Likewise, an increased organizational awareness of implementing and enforcing security policies and practices has driven the need for a formalized approach for efficiently responding to and reporting on incidents of compliance breach or compromised security.

Critical Infrastructure Protection
Enterprise infrastructures have become increasingly interconnected, they have also become more vulnerable to more targeted cyber attacks.  The distinction between physical and cyber attacks continue to diminish while the damage profile of these attacks is exponentially increasing.  A successful attack on these critical infrastructures would have a crippling effect on an enterprise’s economic and strategic interests and viability.  Greater attention is being placed on critical infrastructure protection with the governments’ recent implementation of its National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.  This document acknowledges the role of the private sector in operating and maintaining critical infrastructures and the public sector’s dependence on their operations and must be considered in compliance best-practices.
