THREAT DETECTION WITH CLOUD-BASED SECURITY MONITORING
Cybersecurity is a large term that has many connotations. Cybersecurity can entail everything from the physical security of
assets to the secure containment of software development and through to patch management or records restoration if a
breach has occurred. However, at the heart of cybersecurity are these requisites:
Preventing attacks. A company must be able to deflect the most common malware strains
(understanding that the miscreant is innovating, too). Servers and endpoints must have secure
configurations. Vulnerabilities are like loose threads on a shirt; if you tease them out long enough, you can
rip apart fabrics at the seams.
Network visibility. Even in small networks, endpoints can be lost or never associated with the network
infrastructure to begin with. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including server array configurations,
new OS/software upgrades, or power surges. Of course, the best cyberattacks emanate in the dark. A
security team must be able to dynamically discover endpoints because this is almost impossible to do
through manual processes.
Alarm management. The network administrator or security team knows that something is awry in the
network; they have received an alarm telling them so. Alarms can be problematic in three ways. An alarm
may conflate a benign event with a security incident. Secondly, an alarm may be a replication and come from
redundant sources. Lastly, an alarm could be a false positive; the alarm does not reflect accurately what is
happening in the network.
Fast detection. In the “preventing attacks” phase, a company is challenged to create as much friction as
possible to discourage miscreants. However, even in the best and smartest designed cybersecurity postures,
miscreants are getting in. A company must have strategies beyond the perimeter to determine if there has
been a breach.
Contextual awareness. Alert management and fast detection is often a gauntlet that a security analyst
has to negotiate. When an alarm escalates into an incident, a security analyst must be able to contextualize
the incident to what systems and endpoints are affected and where the attack originated. More than that,
it has to be determined if the attack is spreading. True contextual awareness will integrate external threat
feed data to determine the severity of an attack and what is the proper incident response.
Incident response. The security analyst must have at his disposal a combination of response options
for the suspect endpoint—to deny/quarantine/block or send to the guest network. Preferably, manual or
automated responses are included.
Back to normal. In many ways, the “all’s clear” sign resembles the Preventing Attacks state. The security
analyst must be able to tell if the patches have taken hold and the network security surface is secure.
The largest companies and enterprises have impressive resources. A viable option for enterprises is to build a dedicated
security operations center (SOC) and staff the SOC with dedicated personnel. Midsized companies, though, have to make
do with fewer resources or create redundancies for existing personnel.
