CThe National Cyber Summit offers unique educational, collaborative and workforce development opportunities for industry visionaries and rising leaders. Our core focus is on two things: accessibility and connectivity.

CGI is exhibiting at booth 921 and presenting on “How to Build a World-Class Cybersecurity Program in the Face of Continuously-evolving Threats and Cyber Talent Shortage” on Wednesday, June 5, at 4:15 pm. 

How do you build a world-class cybersecurity program that protects the business, and in many cases, develops a differentiator for your organization? The challenges are apparent and typically come down to cost and the availability of talent to execute the vision. The goal is to move away from traditional, reactive Security Operations Center (SOC) activities, transitioning to and beyond proactive to predictive. How do you do that in a market where cyber talent is often difficult and expensive to retain? The answer is not necessarily a new tool but a modular approach to threat identification, analysis, and action.

CGI built its Cyber Threat Analysis Center (CTAC) as an extension of existing SOC capabilities specifically to address the evolving cyber threat by improving security posture, operational efficiency, and rapid threat identification and response. With a heavy focus on automation, cross-tool integration, data mining, and data analysis, CGI’s CTAC leverages existing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) investments and various threat intelligence sources to deliver full-scope cyber services with a smaller staff compared to traditional approaches. A one-team, integrated approach allows cyber team members to address issues quickly while freeing up time to provide additional value-add services such as:

  • Digital Forensics
  • Insider Threat
  • eDiscovery
  • Malware Analysis
  • Threat Hunting
  • Fusion Analysis 

By focusing on automating and integrating the entire chain, you are then able to cross-train cyber talent instead of creating skill silos. The result is a more robust, satisfied cyber team that retains longer than industry averages delivering more capabilities at lower cost to the organization.
