Why Does Proactive Security Monitoring Matter?
While cyber intrusions have become more sophisticated over time, most still prey on the same vulnerabilities that have plagued organizations for years. Signature-based security measures such as anti-virus and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) don’t always keep up with new zero-day threats, and relying on reactive security monitoring means that you’re responding AFTER a security incident is already in progress.
A defense-in-depth strategy uses traditional security measures combined with proactive security monitoring, such as looking for changes in your hardware and software, performing regular vulnerability scans, proactively patching systems, and monitoring security controls. A number of studies have shown that proactively monitoring critical security controls can greatly reduce the number of security incidents experienced by an organization.
