Proactive and comprehensive monitoring of security events on information systems is one of today's major security challenges for most companies. Although investments in information security products and solutions are continuously growing, the number of security incidents is still on the rise and losses from successful cyber-attacks are getting bigger and bigger.
Some of the key challenges that companies are facing related to proactive security monitoring are listed below.
INFGIO IS is one of the leading information security companies with abundant experience in implementation of the SIEM systems and implementation of Security Operations Centers (SOC). INFIGO IS offers its clients implementation services of a comprehensive system for monitoring security events on the information system, including specialized OS support.
The outsourcing of operational security monitoring of the information system to clients brings numerous benefits:
The basic features of INFIGO IS Managed SOC services are described below.
Managed SOC service provides the user with continuous monitoring of security events on the information system in accordance with the agreed level of service (SLA). A team of specialized specialists is organized in teams with clearly defined roles and responsibilities to monitor security events.
The security monitoring process is governed by procedures that define security event control rules and policies for detecting potentially malicious activities. In case of detection of suspicious events escalation procedures and communication rules are defined (in collaboration with client) so that efficient response to detected threats is achieved.
In addition to monitoring of security events, Managed SOC services also include an active response to reported security incidents or customer support when solving them.
For this purpose, the processes and procedures that define the ways in which to deal with the incidents, the rules and the hierarchy of communication, the way of exchange of information, etc. are agreed with the client.
INFIGO IS experience in solving and analyzing security incidents enables efficient response to detected incidents and their timely removal.
INFIGO IS Managed SOC uses the so-called " Threat Intelligence Services” in order to raise the level of ability to detect potential incidents. IT services enable the enrichment of information collected through regular operational security monitoring with other internal and external sources of relevant security threats.
In this way, the detected security events provide an additional context that enables better decision making and response to detected security events.
Within INFIGO Managed SOC Services, INFIGO IS has established its own TI infrastructure that is closely integrated with other security monitoring processes.
The reaction to security events on the information system is usually of a reactive character, which is in some way expected. The problem with this approach is that organizations have on average an extremely low ability to detect security incidents and as such are unable to detect a compromised information system for a longer period. Research shows that the average time needed to detect security incidents is in dozens, sometimes hundreds of days, which is unacceptable from a business perspective.
Threat hunting in some ways changes the method to detection of incidents by providing information and logs available for proactive investigation of incidents on the information system. Instead of detecting an incident based on random events or alarms that may sometimes be absent if the attacker is sufficiently skilled and well prepared, threat hunting implies a proactive analysis and detection of potential compromise indicators. INFIGO IS Managed SOC service also provides such a form of security monitoring.
INFIGO IS is a company with many years of experience in offensive and defensive security, and one of the key segments of services provided is the implementation of the SIEM system and the organization of Security Operations Centers (SOC).
