Protecting the front-line: Overworked and overwhelmed

As security continues its rise towards being a more strategic business function, we need to remember front-line teams. Working hard identifying, analysing and mitigating threats is challenging but vital work.  Being on the sharp end of an endless barrage not only decreases effectiveness, but impacts mental health and team culture.  

Yet despite all their efforts, mean time to identify a security breach is still 197 days, and containment another 69. The reality is that with the current reactive approaches to cyber defence, there simply aren’t enough skilled professionals to analyse the volume of incidents that most organisations face. With limited resources, an ever-growing skills gap and an escalating volume of security alerts, organisations are left vulnerable to what is perceived to be unavoidable risk. This environment is demanding more of already resource-constrained CISOs.

So how can they further minimise risk from cyber threats without further increasing the workload?

Thank you for the invitation to the excellent event on Thursday evening - I particularly enjoyed the opening by Stephen Bonner. Not a sales pitch. Funny. And insightful. Plus a fabulous venue. Well done.

The evening was a perfect blend of entertaining, useful networking, banter and opinion. Oh, and the food and drink were particularly good. I'm looking forward to joining in future events.
