Be Response Ready with IANS Tech Briefings

May 4, 2023 | By IANS Research

Vulnerabilities and breaches make mainstream news regularly. With a new vulnerability seemingly discovered daily, it can be difficult for security teams to decipher which should be taken more seriously (i.e., patch now!) and which are overhyped.

When a security incident occurs, you and your team need real-world context and perspective into what happened along with guidelines to mitigate risk. This piece details how IANS Faculty Tech Briefings help you gain insight and guidance into breaking threats, pressing vulnerabilities, breaches & events.

The Challenge: How to Prioritize Breaking Cybersecurity Incidents 

Concerns over new versions of cyberattacks, large-scale exploitations of vulnerabilities and increasing global ransomware threats have all exacerbated an already dynamic threat environment. Our research found that companies cited suffering a security incident as one of the top-three reasons for an increase in security budget. 

Major cybersecurity news stories can command or distract your attention, running the security gamut - from a specific vulnerability to a new threat actor. It can be overwhelming to keep up with all the cybersecurity updates, news and alerts and not develop ‘security fatigue.’ Moreover, most news sites inform and educate rather than present actionable solutions. Compounding the issue is the fact that there will always be stories that will not make the WSJ but still require CISOs and security teams to take action.
