The devil and security are in the details, especially for managed security!
Organisations rely on managed security services to monitor their networks round the clock, to help with intrusion detection, patch management, security audits, data back-up, etc. But challenges remain. Increasing ransomware attacks, connected OT systems, skill shortages and rapid technological changes, to name only a few.
Takeaways from the Beltug X-change: 15 June 2022

There are a broad number of protections organisations may rely on: anti-virus, firewalls, access and identity management, back-up systems, SOCs, security operations centres and SIEM (Security information and event management) products and services, etc. But do they have a view over all their IT assets? And what about MDR (managed detection and response) and XDR (extended detection and response)?
In this session, we heard from NTT about what XDR is and when it can help security professionals. Greenyard explained how it chose a managed security service provider. Then, we heard real-life stories from Corona Direct and from the Province of East-Flanders about their paths to managed security services.
Presentations from the event are available for Beltug members (after login).
