Security operations professionals are constantly being forced to adapt, whether it is to the latest threat evolution, adversary techniques or changing attack surface. Until this year, they had at least one reliable routine: the ability to collaborate in person. Then COVID-19 disrupted the status quo and forced security analysts, engineers and others to remote settings.
Teleworking naturally delivered havoc to security operations programs and teams, but to what extent? Nearly one year after the pandemic began, how have security postures coped and personnel adjusted to the shaking of the SecOps status quo. And, perhaps more importantly, what does the future hold?
The State of Remote Security Operations report, which surveyed nearly 400 security operations professionals, sought to measure the impact of COVID-19 and ensuing work-from-home transition from the perspective of security analysts, SOC managers and others tasked with detection and response efforts within organizations.
We distilled the findings into three parts: the threat component, the human component and the opportunity component, because to look forward we must look back at the conditions that have created where you are now.
