It's About Time. Quantifying the Value of Time in Threat Detection and Incident Response
Speaker: Derek Brink, VP and Research Fellow (Aberdeen Group) | John Collins, CTU Special Operations Manager (SecureWorks)
Duration: 41:24 mins
The stakes for enterprise investments in threat detection and incident response capabilities are getting higher, as evidenced by empirical data from successful cyber attacks detected and remediated by SecureWorks, a Dell Technologies company.
The sheer growth and complexity of the technical threat landscape and vulnerability landscape means that merely keeping up is no longer enough. In cybersecurity, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain.
Join Derek Brink, vice president and research fellow for Aberdeen Group, and John Collins, Operations Manager for the SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Special Operations Team and Advisory Systems Engineer for threat intelligence services, to gain fact-based insights into:
- Real use cases where time to detect has impacted the business outcome
- Trends in threat actors and motivations – and how this affects your strategies for protection, detection, and response
- Quantifying the value and ROI of faster detection and response – for both attacks on availability (e.g., unplanned downtime or slowdown), and attacks on confidentiality (e.g., a data breach)
- The increasingly important role played by third party threat detection and incident response, in this rapidly evolving context
