Look Through a Single Pane of Glass

When different teams with different goals use different tools and procedures, conflicts and errors occur. The teams tasked with security, operations and applications already have different cultures and reporting structures that they follow. If they also have different degrees of visibility across the network, they are unlikely to agree on overarching goals, ultimately making the entire organization less secure and agile. If everyone is working with the same tools and procedures, they will see the same picture and be able to recognize — and agree on — the current status, risks and opportunities.

It comes as no surprise to security practitioners that managing security is becoming more and more demanding. Organizations are facing more threats, greater complexity and increased demand for both security and application connectivity. While many companies are deploying the latest and greatest technologies to fight back against cyber attacks, they often neglect their security policy management basics.

In his years of interactions with companies across pretty much every geography and industry vertical, Nimmy Reichenberg, vice president of strategy at AlgoSec, has found that going back to the basics is key when managing an effective security policy and a crucial first step in making your organization more responsive, agile, compliant and secure. In this slideshow, Reichenberg has identified seven common pitfalls organizations face and tips for how to deal with them.
