RSA Security, the security division of storage firm EMC, today announced new consulting and advisory services designed to help enterprises improve their security operations and better manage risk and compliance.
The RSA Consulting & Advisory Services for Security Operations package has been broadly split into three offerings, according to RSA's senior manager of compliance solutions, Dave Howells.
The first covers strategy and assessment, and is designed for companies looking to improve established security operations or for those without such operations. It broadly aims to "help customers understand the processes, procedures and best practice to build an effective strategy" in security operations, said Howells.
The second consulting offering is based around security operations management, and is designed to help organisations understand how to manage security incidents, including what the workflow should look like and which processes to follow if an incident occurs.
Finally, the Security Operations Analysis & Design service is aimed at enterprises seeking a broad evaluation of security operations requirements, and provides an incident handling framework.
"The notion of security operations is not a new one - collecting information from the security infrastructure to provide the ability to respond to incidents, " said Howells.
"But today we are facing a situation where identities are more complex. The threats are getting more complex and the infrastructure is too. Companies have not really taken a step back and thought about what the threat environment is like."
