SOC – Our Cyber Security Hub
Digitalisation in the IT/OT environment increases companies’ flexibility and efficiency tremendously. However, it also makes them attractive targets for cybercriminals. Using increasingly professional methods, hackers cause damage and seek to use data and information to their advantage. Detecting and containing attacks presents companies with complex challenges, especially given the high number of systems in use and their huge variety of vulnerabilities.
In order to protect themselves, companies use a wide range of administrative, physical and technical controls that each provide an isolated view of the individual systems and generate a vast amount of log data. Evaluating and interpreting the situation quickly is a Herculean task. A business’s location, tools and processes are often insufficiently developed for this, and these weaknesses are exacerbated further by a shortage of skilled workers.
Security Operations Center
This is where a Security Operations Center (SOC) can help. It functions as a central hub, controlling and monitoring all security measures. The effectiveness of the defence mechanisms in place is constantly evaluated, and the findings are then used to improve and adapt the security strategy. Regularly generated reports and analyses keep management abreast of the overall IT security situation and the effectiveness of the measures in place.
Humans are undisputedly at the top of the list when it comes to cybercriminals’ favourite targets. Almost all studies and surveys have shown this for many years. For this reason, it is not at all surprising that 90% of all successful attacks are initiated by phishing. The use of social engineering tactics is also increasing sharply. Of course, permanently monitoring and improving technical defence systems as well as constantly reviewing processes are essential in any effective security system. However, it is at least equally important that employees in all parts of the company know how to recognise attacks for themselves and respond correctly.
Highly trained staff is the best protection
Prevent cybercriminals from abusing your employees in their attempts to damage your company. A year-long study by KnowBe4 followed 6 million participants in a security awareness training programme and analysed the impact on their security and risk behaviour. At the beginning of the training, 27% of them acted in ways that could have been exploited in a phishing attack, but that rate had fallen to 13% after 3 months, and to just 2.2% after a year.
You can only work on your weaknesses if you know what they are. Hackers are getting more and more creative, and cyber attacks are becoming increasingly common. With the help of realistic penetration tests, you can uncover hidden vulnerabilities and evaluate the effectiveness of your security measures. Carry out targeted and strategic security assessments and improve your security posture.
Axians offers a broad spectrum of penetration tests and provides you with tailored solutions to strengthen your cyber security in the long term. Axians can also offer automated pentesting using revolutionary technologies. Learn more!
