Focus Area: Cyber Defence Center

What is Cyber Defence Center

Today, the Cyber Defence Center (CDC) or Security Operations Center (SOC) is at the heart of enterprise security management. It is used to monitor and analyze security alerts coming from the various systems across the enterprise and to take actions against detected threats. However, the rapidly growing number and sophistication of modern advanced cyber-attacks make running a SOC an increasingly challenging task even for the largest enterprises with their fat budgets for IT security. The overwhelming number of alerts puts a huge strain even on the best security experts, leaving just minutes for them to decide whether an alert indicates a real cyber-attack or is merely a false positive. In fact, the biggest challenge the security industry is now facing is the lack of qualified experts to deal with the growing number of cyber-threats.

To address this massive skills gap, a new generation of security solutions has emerged recently, with vendors focusing on filtering out the statistical noise and bringing the amount of security alerts to a manageable number of alerts categorized by their severity, improving security analysts’ efficiency with intelligent automated controls and, last but not least, on enabling even non-technical persons to make informed decisions and initiate incident response as quickly as possible. From statistical correlation methods to machine learning algorithms, from risk models to behavior profiling, from threat intelligence to cognitive technologies – there is a lot of exciting new developments going on in information security, which promise to dramatically improve the efficiency of your SOC.

Banks will soon have to comply with the Revised Payment Service Directive, commonly called "PSD2." The directive will introduce massive changes to the payments industry and radically alter the user experience for customers of European banks by allowing third party payment service providers (TPP) to access their account information to provide various innovative financial services. But to mitigate risk, banks and TPPs must address the core regulatory technical requirements outlined by PSD2.
