When faced with evolving threats, it can be a tricky balance to keep all of the above aligned and focused. This is where FOXMOLE helps with a structured yet adaptable approach, whilst questioning and challenging accepted thinking.
For example, FOXMOLE recommends investing efforts to strengthen weak areas that may exist across the “Protect”, “Detect” and “React” categories. For example, if the “Protect” function currently delivers well resulting in high fences around the castle. but if an orgnaisation's “Detection” of attackers evading the protective measurements is weak, FOXMOLE recommends improving “Detect” ahead of further improving an area of strength.
It is important that to have a balance between the pillars of security to reduce the impact of events. Sometimes an organizational policy is more efficient to fulfill a purpose, at other times, a technology which enforces is the best approach and an improvement or change in processes to increase the overall security level is required.
Strategic decisions are as much about deciding not do take a course of action as taking one. FOXMOLE helps clients make sometimes bold yet smart choices, supported by well-founded data and observations.
