How can a comprehensive view of threats improve cybersecurity?
STT GDC India wanted to detect and monitor cyber threats across its different system environments.
STT GDC India wanted to develop an effective cybersecurity strategy with highly mature threat detection and response capabilities. The company & EY partnered together to conduct a gap assessment of cybersecurity framework, which revealed multiple areas of improvement in cybersecurity policy. These improvement areas were identified as per benchmarks and standards identified by leading industry practices and security standards and guidelines such as ISO27001 and NIST. As part of the exercise, the assessment identified the need for improving the following: security monitoring and operations, business continuity planning and disaster recovery, privacy, and data protection.
We needed a comprehensive, best-in-class cybersecurity platform that would consolidate information from multiple threat vectors – cloud, physical and virtual assets, network and endpoints – into a single pane to enable the monitoring team to run with maximum efficiency.
While the company recognized a clear need for building a security operations centre, it found several drawbacks in existing market solutions which rendered them ineligible. The solution had to be tailored specifically for the company’s business and designed to mitigate against threats from advanced and interactive attackers.
