It is impossible for the timing of Sy4 Security’s launch to be lost on Keven Knight, COO of the U.K.-based MSSP. Sy4, which spun out of BAE Systems’ commercial managed security business, not only emerged during a global pandemic (which included the construction of a new security operations center), but also had to ensure it never lost sight of new customer risks fueled by the COVID-19 crisis.
In Ep. 5 of SOC Quarantine Diaries, Knight joins us to discuss the benefit for an MSSP to retain a physical SOC presence (7:10), the nefarious opportunities that the rise in remote workers and devices on the network have given cybercriminals (10:05), and how collaboration among personnel of varying security operations disciplines can continue effectively in the era of coronavirus (22:30), plus much more.
