Not all security operation teams are the same. Low maturity teams have ad-hoc processes and minimal automation or tool implementation. Medium maturity teams have some codified processes and policies in place but may lack consistent performance measurement and monitoring. High maturity teams have formalized procedures along with orchestration and automation implementation to allow for maximum efficiency and accuracy. Building a mature team requires preliminary work such as creating SSPs. Security teams looking to elevate their workflow and performance should follow this guide to start building a high-maturity team.
In this guide, we’ve covered the importance of establishing a consistent security operations team by evaluating and streamlining repeatable SSPs. This way, you can ensure consistent quality output from your team every single time. Although building foundational security operation procedures is not an easy task, it is pivotal to a SOC’s success by increasing the quality, speed and accuracy of response. Organizations that are looking to not only enhance their security operations with standard procedures but to also increase efficiency with automation and orchestration, should definitely begin to lay the groundwork by building foundational security operations with Splunk SOAR. Here are some key takeaways as you start your journey to implement robust standard security procedures with your security team.
