Dark Reading recently surveyed IT and cybersecurity professionals from a variety of businesses and organizations. According to their new report, 94% of enterprises feel the first 24 hours after discovering a cyberattack are the most critical.
They also found that, despite increasing emphasis on the importance of effective and timely incident response, security teams may actually be overconfident in assessing their current IR capabilities.
When your workforce goes remote, it’s time to rethink your business processes and tool strategy for optimum collaboration. A shift to virtual work is redefining how teams interact and complete complex tasks together. For security professionals, quickly overcoming the challenges of operating a virtual security operations center (SOC) is critical to maintain business continuity and protect the organization from emerging threats.
Matt Chiodi, Chief Security Officer for Public Cloud at Palo Alto Networks, talks with Greg Otto on how his company is helping enterprises set up cloud instances that help both development and security teams get their job done through their Unit 42 Cloud Threat Report.
In February, hardware maker Zyxel fixed a zero-day vulnerability in its routers and VPN firewall products after KrebsOnSecurity told the company the flaw was being abused by attackers to break into devices.
Learn to secure remote workforces with Prisma Access. Prisma Access is a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution for securely connecting users anywhere they are, to applications and services everywhere, including the cloud (public and private), SaaS, your data center and the Internet.
Security teams face a dizzying array of threats, from ransomware and cyberespionage to fileless attacks and damaging data breaches. However, the biggest headache for many security analysts is not the endless number of risks that dominate news headlines but the frustrating, repetitive tasks they must perform every day as they triage incidents and attempt to whittle down an endless backlog of alerts.
As we all suddenly find ourselves working remote, we know this is a critical time for security operations teams to stay connected and overcome the shifting challenges of protecting their organizations.

CortexTM XSOAR is a comprehensive security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform that unifies case management, automation, real-time collaboration and threat intel management to serve security teams across the incident lifecycle.
Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk.
The CSF can be applied to businesses of all sizes, across regions and industries, and is being incorporated into national risk frameworks around the globe. Given its proven ability to aid in risk management and reduction, some industries have even begun to mandate its implementation. Namely, the White House recently issued an executive order requiring all federal agencies to immediately begin using the CSF to assess and manage cyber risk to protect critical infrastructure in their enterprises.
Designed to foster positive and productive risk and cybersecurity management dialogue among internal and external business stakeholders, the CSF provides a common language for all appropriate teams, spanning IT, operations, security, finance, C-suite and board of directors. Based on this open dialogue, organizations can more effectively quantify risk and prioritize investments to mitigate it.
Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform aligns with the CSF’s primary directive of enabling critical infrastructure operations to effectively identify, manage and reduce cyber risk. Rooted in prevention, the Next-Generation Security Platform is natively integrated to counter cyberattacks before they manifest in an organization’s environment. With full visibility into traffic – across the network, endpoints and the cloud – organizations can prevent cyberattacks based on how or where applications and data reside or are being used. This allows critical infrastructure organizations to identify the most serious ongoing threats to key business operations and reduce overall cybersecurity risk.
