Cyber Fusion Center Guide

A whitepaper by Health-ISAC Navigator, Cyware

Boost threat response with better collaboration between security teams

Rising security spending isn’t enough to combat increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyber threats. The number of security incidents and breaches grows each year and will continue rising until security teams find a solution to their primary challenges:

• Too many alerts with too little context • Siloed security functions • Inefficiencies and duplication of tools and effort • Poorly managed and standardized security data • Lack of time to focus on proactive security functions • Continued shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals • Lack of automation and orchestration for incident response and threat intelligence teams

Cyber fusion center platforms (CFC) were initially designed to address these challenges but haven’t always delivered on their promise. The reason is that most platforms provide just one or two of the three core SOAR capabilities (security orchestration, automation, and response) and not well enough to substantially improve security processes or outcomes. This white paper examines a solution to security challenges that builds upon SOAR technology and the cyber fusion center platform—and how it can improve collaboration and threat response. 

Key Learning Points

→ As the threat landscape worsens, enterprise security teams are losing ground against their attackers. They now take an average of 219 days to identify and contain a security breach.

→ Security teams are hamstrung by inefficiencies and collaboration challenges caused by a lack of integration between disparate security tools and processes.

→ SOAR technology has failed to deliver on its promise and doesn’t make a meaningful difference to the challenges faced by today’s security teams.

→ CFC platforms break down silos with a combination of SOAR functionality, enhanced threat intelligence, and situational awareness, enabling faster and more effective threat response.

→ Enterprises should look beyond their borders by engaging with intelligence-sharing communities like ISACs that help all members build collective defense within and beyond their borders.
