Security Operations Benchmarking & Optimization

Ensure a Superior Security Event Response

Security Operations Benchmarking & Optimization Overview

When disaster strikes, are your people, processes and procedures ready? Is your staff trained to handle an event involving new technologies, like VoIP? A physical or cyber intrusion can cripple your organization if you're not prepared for the worst. We can help measure your preparedness and develop a solid response plan for a broad range of potential threats and incidents.

Our Security Operations Benchmarking & Optimization services can help you assess and improve the event response effectiveness of your staff, network infrastructure, security technology and supporting operations processes. We'll help you understand how to identify a problem and its cause, contain it, and recover quickly. So no matter what the challenge, your teams and infrastructure will be ready.

Methodologies and Tools: 

Methodologies and Tools

Our approach to security operations benchmarking and optimization includes:

  • Intrusion/incident event simulation. Our security optimization experts produce a customized cyber and/or physical event scenario to test the people, policies and procedures in place at your organization.
  • Exercise assessment. We provide a report detailing what went right and wrong during the exercise to identify those policies and procedures that may need to be changed or implemented to meet industry best practices.
  • Management briefing. We'll hold a dynamic round-table discussion with your team to deliver feedback to the exercise response, discuss necessary areas of improvement and effective solutions.
  • On-site observation. We can monitor your network operations center staff over a period of time to better understand how they handle alarms and security events. By seeing how your teams work day-to-day, we can make recommendations for additional or different policies and procedures.
