Security and monitoring functions are the unsung heroes of every organisation. Security teams responsible for protecting sensitive data and critical services are all too aware of the shifting nature of risks in an ever-evolving environment, making it vital for securities operations to adopt proactive monitoring and assessment.

One of the major challenges we see within organisations is resource intensive manual processes, driving accountability and bridging the disconnect between security, risk and IT teams. Technology solutions have traditionally been implemented across siloed departments to solve existing and discrete problems. The result can be a patchwork of technology with variable levels of security and little integration across the enterprise.

KPMG Powered Cyber – SecOps takes the hard work out of transforming an organisation’s security function by beginning with a model solution based on industry best practice. Instead of starting from scratch we present a solution with solid foundations which can be tailored to a client’s specific requirements.

KPMG Powered Cyber – SecOps brings about a faster, integrated and standardised response which prioritises critical security risks, assigns accountability and keeps automation at its core.

Using a cloud-based preconfigured platform for vulnerability management and security incident management, our solution supports continuous innovation and a forward-thinking approach which builds and maintains trust throughout the enterprise and its customers.

Crucially KPMG Powered Cyber – SecOps provides end-to-end views of security, IT and the governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) function, driving joined-up risk management processes across the organisation. The result is to forge strong connections between these three crucial areas with heightened reporting of enterprise-wide risk and compliance positions and issues.

One of the most lauded benefits of the standardised and automated responses built into the platform is that they enable organisations to react at speed. The time for response for incidents that have taken around 40 hours in the past can be cut down to just a few hours – in some cases, even to minutes.

KPMG Powered Cyber – SecOps also provides an accurate view of current security risks and vulnerabilities at any point in time. Customised reports using enhanced metrics and dashboards provide advanced reporting and management information to encompass information across the entire organisation, adding value through the availability of instant assessment of overall impacts.

This outcome-driven transformation solution has been used by clients nationally and internationally including banks, asset managers, government departments, energy companies and retail organisations.

KPMG Powered Cyber – SecOps provides a smarter, faster way to help achieve security operations transformation goals by combining deep security operations knowledge with proven delivery capability and leading technology.
