Vector highlighting cyber risk


83% of businesses admit suffering major damage if an outage lasts more than 24 hours.
 Meanwhile, there's no stopping to the increasing ransomware and other sophisticated exploits.

That said, businesses are stuck in the traditional ways of managing security posture. It leaves them unprepared for imminent cyber-attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in their ever-growing attack surface.

The need to pre-empt the damage and diffuse attacks before they occur is more crucial than ever.

proactive approach to security

There's a strong desire and understanding for proactive SecOps among security professionals. Most of them indicated an interest in working on risk management and threat modeling.

However, often they end up spending most of their time on tedious tasks like patching and analyzing alerts.  

With a focus on prioritizing threats based on business impact, the companies prefer threat modeling. It is understandable because threat modeling enables proactive security operations by
evaluating risk from the likelihood of the attack and cost to the business.
 

proactive cybersecurity SecOps

With security teams spending most of their time on patching, analyzing, and removing false positives, it is no wonder that
47% of companies rely on MSPs (Managed Service Providers).
 

Most security professionals operate in reactive mode and continue spending most of their time on mundane tasks. Instead, they should be more focused on
proactive tasks like risk management and threat modeling
.

Surprisingly, a meager 17% perform threat modeling using MSPs. If only empowered with the needed support and technology, the security teams can scale up quickly taking the SecOps to proactive mode.
