People, process, and technology are the three ingredients of a powerful security arsenal. This trio is more than the sum of its parts; people, process, and technology alone can’t solve security problems.
We’ve already covered two of the three ingredients: how to hire an effective security team, and how to select security tools. The third, process, is what enables cohesion across a security operations organization, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks. Security processes are especially crucial for growing teams that have to deal with a large volume of complex threats every day. They ensure effective strategies and workflows are documented, even as team members come and go.
To be effective, security processes must strike the right balance between being flexible and efficient, while still comprehensive and durable. Achieving this can be difficult to do without a framework, which is why many security teams fall victim to bloated processes that hold them back rather than enabling them to move and respond faster.
To help your team solve practical security problems more efficiently, we put together an eBook that offers a framework for creating and implementing security processes.
Here’s what we cover in the eBook:
- Why security needs processes
- Where and when to implement processes
- The two types of security processes
- A guide to creating and testing processes
- How to automate processes
Using this eBook as a guide, your team will be able to craft security processes that solve for real-world problems, making it easier to get security tasks done faster, easier, and with more accuracy.
