A more foundational goal is to make security and compliance part of the development process from the start. This is a transition that requires DevOps to bring along risk, security and compliance teams into the shared responsibility of making the organization resilient to change. But bringing the idea of shared responsibility to fruition can be difficult because there is a natural tension between DevOps and SecOps, as they have different charters and cultures. DevOps can be seen as more of a do culture (Atlassian calls this a “do-ocracy”) and SecOps can be seen as a control culture and they are inherently in conflict. To fulfill the promise of teaming for shared responsibility, DevOps and SecOps should align on three key objectives: collaboration, communication and integration.
With no one size fits all solution, there have always been different ways to tackle the plethora of security threats. However, the increasing use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as they are often called, is changing that. Fully automated drones can be operated by security agents, with no pilot certification, and are directly integrated into existing security networks and processes. But aren’t they expensive? And won’t the technology turn out to be just a passing trend?

The talent war is real, the strength in numbers favors our opponent, we now have the original digital transformations we were planning pre-COVID, and now we have additional transformations that we have to take on to enable a distributed workforce that was previously never a consideration. There simply are not enough properly equipped resources to meet global demand, and even then, an organization is only as strong as its weakest analyst. The adversary knows that and, leverages the vulnerabilities in human behavior to advance their position in the “infinite game” of cyber warfare.
Traditionally, security operations centers (SOC) used tools such as endpoint detection and response (EDR), network detection and response (NDR), and security information and event management (SIEM), but as a result of the rush to remote work, many security teams have found their tools are now blind to many new and emerging threats.
Security operations centers need to solve the detection puzzle, creating human experience that is less tedious and more productive. The overall solution must give security professionals and the enterprise a consistent view of security preparedness, and the necessary implementations to keep their coverage high and their alerts rich. So where do you start?
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are more than an inconvenience; they paralyze operations and cause significant direct and indirect costs to those affected. Over 23,000 DDoS attacks are recorded per day, leaving companies to deal with disrupted online services. Recently, New Zealand’s Stock Exchange (NZX) was hit by a large DDoS attack for four consecutive days which led to a stock market closure that barred many from trading.
