Security operations management involves coordinating the efforts of multiple teams or solutions to ensure that an organisation’s data and systems are secure and compliant.
This includes implementing security protocols and controls, regularly reviewing and updating security policies and procedures, monitoring for potential threats, and responding to security incidents as they arise. Continuous testing, security validation and policy enforcement enables organisations to keep on-top of current threats and improve their security posture.

Extended Detection and Response (XDR)
Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is a cybersecurity approach that involves collecting and analysing data from a variety of sources to identify and respond to potential threats in real-time.
Anti-malware solutions give a good/bad detection only – with EDR giving further context and tools to identify suspicious behaviour on a single system. eXtended Detection and Response tools enable security teams to look at the impact across multiple devices, networks, cloud and identity providers to give a clearer impact of an attack across the entire estate reducing MTTR.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
A Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system is a security tool that collects and analyses security-related data from a variety of sources, such as network logs, device logs, and security events. It then identifies and alerts security teams on potential threats. SIEM tools are advanced log aggregation solutions that have built-in alerts to identify suspicious behaviours. They allow analysts to drill-down through collated events, build investigations and perform forensics.
Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR)
Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) solutions are tools that allow organisations to automate and streamline their security operations by integrating and automating various security tools and processes, such as SIEM/XDR, incident response and threat intelligence. Security teams can build ‘runbooks’ which are pre-defined processes and actions that an analyst would usually perform manually.
OT / IoT Security
Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) security is critical to organisations today as all OT and IoT systems, devices, and networks are increasingly being used to support critical business operations and processes. As a result, protecting these systems from cyber threats is crucial to the overall security and reliability of an organisation. However, these systems are not always a easy to protect as you may not have the ability to install standard security software or make custom configurations due to the platform being build and managed by a vendor.
Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS)
Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) is a cybersecurity testing methodology that involves simulating cyber attacks on a system or network in order to identify vulnerabilities and test the effectiveness of security controls.
Traditionally organisations would use a mix of vulnerability assessments, penetration tests & red teaming to check and validate that the controls they have in-place are sufficient. BAS solutions automate this process and provide continuous coverage to ensure that security teams can prioritise security remediations.
Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI)
Threat intelligence is the collection and analysis of information about potential threats to an organisation’s systems and data. It can be used to improve an organisation’s cybersecurity posture by providing early warning of potential threats and guidance on how to mitigate them. Using threat intel sources enables organisations to look at emerging threats as well as identify Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) to improve security responses.
