The Four Principles to Get Your SecOps Started

With increased cooperation between the two groups, your business will be more streamlined and secure. Here are four basic principles to get you going.

Rhett | October 21, 2021

SecOps is the short form for “Security Operations” and involves the collaboration between operations and security teams to automate security tasks and make infrastructure as secure as possible. With increased cooperation between the two groups, your business will be more streamlined and secure.

You’ve streamlined your enterprise to work under SecOps. Now what?
Here are four basic principles to get you going.

  1. Perform formal SecOps training 
    • SecOps training can be done internally with developed training programs or externally via third-party courses
    • Implement standard operating procedures (SOPs) across teams to make security and risk remediation a top priority
    • Carry out SOPs routinely to monitor the effectiveness of current practices and catch any new vulnerabilities and
  2. Avoid potential pitfalls
    • SOPs streamline the enterprise and prevent communication mishaps between teams to ensure quicker remediation 
  3. Offer effective SecOps tools
    • There are five main SecOps tools: 
      • Configuration management, security monitoring, and incident management
      • Automated incident response 
      • Security monitoring
      • Security automation
      • Container technologies
  4. Extend Operations Processes to Support Security (not vice versa)
    • Processes handled by the operations team are much more applicable and extensive compared to those by the security team, which are more niche
    • Basing SecOps protocols on operations process is more practical and easily scalable
