If you're understaffed, overcompensate with automation
Efficient – Usain Bolt in the 100m dash.
Effective – John Elway famously in “The Drive” against the Cleveland Browns.
How do you put those two elements together and make your security team unbeatable? You start by building processes, not unlike the quarterback’s playbook. On any given play, all 11 players know exactly what to do and when to do it. They know the formation, who goes in motion when, and on what call the quarterback gets the snap. The rights plays are both efficient and effective. The same can be said for the right security processes built for your team.
We can turn around a set of customized security processes for your organization in less than a month.
You’re probably thinking about the process maps and flowcharts you’ve seen which look more like eye charts than anything else. That alone stops many organizations from creating documented processes. And that stopped us as well until we developed a different technique and method to build and document processes. We have a baseline of nine security process families that we have built, and we customize them to fit our client’s team and environment. We can turn around a set of customized security processes for your organization in less than a month.
The next step is to get your team up to speed on the process details, and we can do that by running everyone through the processes a few times until we’ve all worked out the kinks. At that point, your team can own the processes and the best part is that maintaining them only takes a few hours each quarter (on average).
But here’s the really exciting thing. With proven and consistent processes, you’re ready to take the next step and automate some steps in each process. Which means that your staff now has more free time to focus on what’s important, not to mention all of things they never have time to accomplish.
