Act proactively, not reactively, for rapid cyber risk mitigation
When your security team identifies a cyber risk, rapid mitigation should follow. But in today’s “new normal” security professionals are inundated with alerts, many of which prove to be false negatives. This leads to greater consumption of manpower, staff burnout, and the potential for real security risks to fall through the cracks.
Automating security processes can help teams take a more proactive approach to cyber risk mitigation.
For instance, instead of responding to every alert in the same manner, you could use a solution like BitSight for Security Performance Management (SPM) to get one step ahead of threat actors. BitSight SPM automatically and continuously provides insight into the vulnerabilities facing your organization – such as unpatched systems, misconfigured software, open access ports, and compromised systems – so you can take swift action to allocate security resources where they’re needed most.
Continuously adapt your cyber risk mitigation program
Continuous improvement should be the goal of any board or C-suite. But identifying the optimal course of action to improve your cybersecurity risk posture isn’t easy. BitSight Forecasting can help.
With BitSight Forecasting, you can model different scenarios and paths of remediation to project future security performance. Get answers to difficult yet critical questions about where to spend security budgets, what activities will quickly reduce risk, and whether technology implementations should be changed.
Armed with this information, you can make more informed decisions about the strategy and resources needed to improve your security posture. You can also track your progress to determine the impact of program changes, update executives and the board, and ensure your organization hits its goals.
BitSight also helps you determine the security posture your organization should strive to achieve. BitSight Peer Analytics is a powerful tool that delivers unprecedented visibility into the relative performance of your security program compared to your peers. Benchmark your program against other organizations of similar size or in your industry, so you can make informed, comparative decisions about where to focus your cybersecurity efforts to achieve continuous improvement — and where to advocate for increased resources.
