Threat Lifecycle Management: A new approach to cybersecurity

Prevent major data breaches by reducing time to detect and respond to threats

Globally, sophisticated cyber-attacks are compromising organisations at an unprecedented rate and with devastating consequences. These attacks are often very expensive for compromised organisations, costing each company an average of $7.7M, as reported by the Ponemon 2015 Cost of Cyber Crime Study.

A new approach is required. Traditionally, prevention-centric strategies have been employed to block attacks. However, many of todays advanced, motivated threat actors are circumventing these defences.

This paper introduces the concept of threat lifecycle management (TLM)—a fundamental end-to-end detection and response workflow for security operations centres (SOCs).

TLM is a series of aligned security operations capabilities and processes that begins with the ability to see broadly and deeply across your entire IT environment and ends with the ability to quickly mitigate and recover from a security incident.

In this paper, you’ll learn a new approach to defending against cyberthreats, including:

  • The five phases of the cyber attack lifecycle
  • How to prevent high-impact cyber incidents through optimised threat lifecycle management
  • The phases of threat lifecycle management
  • 10 ways LogRhythm expedites the delivery of threat lifecycle management
