Cyber threats are a real and serious issue. You need to know if your system was actually breached, where the breach occurred, and what was compromised. Whether you suspect that something is wrong or have received false positives from your security tools, you need the truth. The question is, where and how do you capture the critical data that you need, and how fast can you capture that information?
According to the 2016 Verizon Digital Breech Investigations Report (DBIR), almost 68% of breaches happen over the course of several days. This means that a rapid response to security threats will help minimize the cost of a breach. The faster you isolate the attack vector, the faster you limit damage to your business. However, according to the Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Cyber Crime Study, it is actually taking businesses longer to resolve cyber attacks. It now takes an average of 46 days to resolve a cyber attack, which is one day longer than it took last year.
