Security Operations Centers: Not Just for Blue Chips

There was a time not too long ago when many businesses and even some government agencies thought differently about cyber security. Sure, malware and data breaches have always posed risks, and those risks have always been taken seriously. But they were regarded as a concern for IT departments, compliance offices and similar entities to worry about.

Those days are long gone.

Today, cyber attacks are a critical threat that should command top-priority status at all organizations. Blue-chip companies have taken multimillion-dollar beatings over mega hacks. Cautionary tales continue to surface about businesses shutting their doors as a result of major data loss. And reports turn out startling statistics about the frequency and cost of data breaches across industries.

Case in point: A recent report from Cisco Systems found a 14 percent year-over-year rise in cyber attack incidents for 2013. Advanced malicious attacks, the report says, are happening at an unprecedented rate and targeting practically every industry.

For many organizations — particularly those that rely on sensitive data — it’s time to take cyber security to the next level. In addition to strengthening real-time monitoring and intelligence efforts, one of the most effective ways bump up cyber security is to deploy a security operations center.

Contrary to popular belief, security operations centers aren’t just for Fortune 100 and tech companies.

About Spence Witten

Spence has somehow survived ten years at start-ups and small businesses without suffering a (major) nervous breakdown. As Lunarline's Director of Federal Sales, Spence actually loves working on proposals. If there were any doubt, this is proof that he is in fact certifiably insane. While his title says "Sales" Lunarline doesn't let him off that easy. We make him do real work, too. Luckily he's a recognized subject matter expert in security policy and loves helping clients navigate their way around tricky security compliance standards. He's also been known to lead a software development initiative or two, though that pretty much always ends poorly for everyone involved. He can be reached at spence.witten@lunarline.com.
