Increasing of importance for the corresponding of Cybersecurity IR Operation

Over the past few years there has been a digital transformation, which has been deployed worldwide regardless of industry or country, and COVID-19, has been causing a pandemic around the world. Through the unprecedented situation, we have to redefine and apply new business models and work styles without waiting. Among them, Japanese companies are particularly slow to take actions in building of cybersecurity incident and response processes. So far, many Japanese companies acquired ISO27001/ISMS compare with others. The certified security guideline is to focus on global standard of security audit, especially for Identity and Protect processes. Therefore, they have not covered it. If the lack of security operations is left unchecked, there is a possibility that the increase in security risks not only for general digital risk such as information leakage and denial of service but also for business continuity, increasing of outsourcing cost, and loss of business opportunities. So far, it was necessary for these enterprise companies to allocate highly skilled engineers that could handle any alerts from multi-vector methodologies, email and syslog, investigate and analyze the incidents deeply and create large-scale organizations and systems to operate it. However, due to enhancing of SOAR technology, it can be realized for integrated alert management and orchestration of security operational task and process and automation.

In addition to support for the SOAR features, Exabeam has the ability for a new Smarter SIEM that can identify behaviors easily that may be abnormal and dangerous through AI based advanced analytics technologies. This enables us to renew our security operations, which have been essential for relying on some experts and building large-scale systems, and improves operational ROI due to releasing from legacy struggled operations and optimization of human resources to cut off considerable time and effort on the current security operations.

Exabeam's Advanced Analytics (UEBA Platform) consist of four engines that are context, session, behavioral and risk. It generates a timeline of sessions, events, and objects from a vast number of log sources. And then it learns about the usual behavior of those people, objects in organizations and create profiling of behavior, then score the risk by using machine learning technology so that analysts can act quickly and appropriately. It is easy to identify users who are acting unusually and dangerously.
However, in order to implement such a new normal security operation, it is necessary to visualize and organize current operational tasks, processes and communication flows, then redesign and implement for the new normal security operation by removing the current issues and by utilizing of Smarter SIEM. As the consulting, design and implementation phase, it is important to support by high skilled consultants and engineers engaged by one team.
