Deloitte: Security Operations, the Central Nervous System of any Cyber Programme

by Deloitte

Organisations’ ability to detect and respond is behind the curve. We must be ready to evolve, understand the critical needs of the business and transform Security Operations into a proactive, intelligence led model.

Falling victim to a cyber-attack is a by-product of the fourth industrial revolution and is now a matter of when, not if it happens to your organisation.
