Address material third-party risk without increasing cybersecurity analyst burnout

Address material third-party risk without increasing cybersecurity analyst burnout

Exhaustion: It is the word that all organizations are talking about in the wake of the pandemic. Your sales team feels it, your marketers feel it, and so does your entire InfoSec team, including your cybersecurity analysts. According to Forrestthe average SecOps team receives more than 11,000 alerts per day. That means cybersecurity analysts receive an alert almost every 8 seconds. What’s worse is that many of these alerts are meaningless and don’t actually pose a real threat.

In this context, the thought of addressing yet another critical gap in your security strategy may seem almost impossible. With limited staff (69% of cybersecurity teams are understaffed), how can cybersecurity analysts manage all of this? They can’t, at least not if they duplicate the failed “spot and alert” strategies of the past.

So how can management reduce the burnout level of its cybersecurity analysts while mitigating material third-party risk from client-side web application attacks? The truth is, client-side security shouldn’t add more load to your already overloaded computer. It is critical that you find an effective way to prevent these attacks without adding additional burden to already overburdened cyber security analysts. Fortunately, we know the solution.

What’s Overwhelming Cybersecurity Analysts?

These repetitive manual tasks prevent analysts from working on high-value projects that strengthen the organization’s overall security posture, such as addressing the low-hanging fruit of third-party risk in your website’s supply chain.

According to a recent teeth report, 64% of cybersecurity analysts spend more than half of their time on tedious, manual activities, and 71% experience higher levels of burnout. the three main tasks that overwhelm and consume the time of a cybersecurity analyst are:

  • Reports
  • Supervision
  • Detection

We are so overwhelmed with responding to our infrastructure that analysts have little time to really assess the real threats that could cause material damage to the organization, such as client-side web application attacks. So when we’re looking to address client-side attacks, we can’t add an additional alert and response burden to our teams, we just need a solution that shuts down the attack vector.
