Get more from your security resources with force multipliers

CISOs today are fighting an asymmetrical battle. Your resources are limited, but you face a virtually unlimited assortment of threats coupled with growing demands to support business transformation. To counter the imbalance, amplify your limited resources with force multipliers. Four essential tools can boost your capabilities: artificial intelligence, automated orchestration, cloud-based security solutions, and collaboration with partners.

Basic strategies to strengthen your security posture

While there is no magic shield to protect your organization, you can take well-established, effective measures to improve your security posture, block many threats outright, minimize others and make all attacks far more difficult for criminals to execute.

Improve decision-making in a security crisis

If your organization focuses on detection and prevention without paying enough attention to response and remediation, you can suffer serious consequences in the event of a breach. Responding “after the boom” requires a playbook, practice and leadership.

Protect your organization with a security immune system

Disconnected point products and services don’t provide comprehensive solutions. That’s why, with more than 1,200 point product vendors, IBM® is helping clients develop an integrated security framework that delivers a robust range of planning, response and readiness solutions.
