Do You Have A Dedicated Cybersecurity Team?
Cybersecurity is one of the top priorities for businesses today – are you confident you’re managing it properly? Have you considered a SOC service?
What’s the most important question you have to answer about cybersecurity?
Which firewall will you choose?
How often will you backup your data?
Is your staff trained properly to identify cybercrime scams?
None of the above. In fact, it’s simpler than that. The most important question you have to answer…
Can You Handle Cybersecurity By Yourself?
In theory, it’s entirely possible. If you’ve invested in the right technologies, and have the right skill set, you could handle cybersecurity for your business all on your own. You would oversee your own installations, management, maintenance, and everything else that comes to with operating a secure and robust business IT environment.
But, if we’re being honest… that’s a big if.
When it comes to protecting against the ongoing, evolving cybersecurity threats in play today, managing cybersecurity is, understandably, a tall order.
You would need:
- The knowledge of how to select, install, manage and maintain increasingly complex IT security systems. Do you have that kind of know-how?
- The time to both maintain systems on an ongoing basis and respond to events as they occur. If you can’t afford to make IT your full-time job, then do you really think you can stay on top of it?
For all these reasons, it’s recommended that business owners simply outsource their IT management tasks to a more capable, more available IT company.
Yes, it will cost more. But it will also guarantee a level of quality and consistency in management and maintenance that likely can’t be achieved by you or someone on your staff trying to manage IT on their own.
That’s why so many businesses choose to invest in a team of experts to manage their cybersecurity for them. You can too, with SureTec 24/7 Managed SOC.
What Is SOC?
A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a team of people, employing a range of proven processes and using carefully implemented technologies which are often centralized, and that – at the very least – gather and analyze user reports and a range of data sources – such as logs — from information systems and cybersecurity controls.
Typically, the main point of a SOC in the business setting is to identify, address and eliminate cybersecurity events that could negatively impact an organization’s information systems or data.
Depending on a number of factors – size, budget, industry, location, etc. — SOCs can vary from organization to organization and are implemented per structural cybersecurity priorities and risk tolerance.
Whereas one business’ SOC will oversee a cybersecurity event from detection to remediation, another may instead focus on supporting and coordinating incident responders and handling incident response communication, which could mean status updates and third-party communication.
The point of outsourced SOC services is that users don’t have to develop and manage a SOC of their own – they can instead get it from an IT company as an outsourced service. When you don’t have SOC services, you don’t have any of the visibility into your systems, unless you happen to be looking at that server at that same time.
What’s The Best Way To Hire A SOC Service?
With help from the SureTec IT team. By outsourcing your SOC to us, you get all the benefits with none of the hassle.
