Are your security controls capable of preventing threats from breaching your defenses? What investments should you make to close gaps in your security architecture? Should you acquire security tools and resources internally or outsource to a managed security service provider (MSSP)? How will you adapt as threat actors introduce new tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to their arsenals? Every organization will answer differently based on its goals, security posture, and overall risk tolerance.
In this guide, we provide a methodology and roadmap for organizations of all sizes to use in assessing and advancing the maturity of their cyber risk management programs. We employ a four-tiered framework that encompasses endpoint protection platforms (EPP), endpoint detection and response (EDR), security operations centers (SOCs), and threat hunting. We also consider the resource requirements and criteria for making these security investments at each stage of overall maturity.
