Is your cybersecurity strategy obsolete? Join us as we disrupt conventional thinking and expose why traditional defences are failing. In this episode, we dive into Safe XDR—the world’s first AI-verified Extended Detection and Response (XDR) platform. Designed for Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM), Safe XDR promises unmatched safety, security, and assurance by integrating the 3 critical dimensions: Coverage, Proactivity, and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR).

Prepare for a paradigm shift:

Proactivity: Are you waiting for a disaster? Learn why predictive insights are no longer a luxury but a necessity in today's aggressive threat environment. Discover how our Risk Operations Centre (ROC) and Security Operations Centre (SOC) leverage proactive, contextualised information to outpace threats and avoid incidents before they happen.

Coverage: Is your coverage a false sense of security? Understand why relying on outdated L1 support is not only inefficient but dangerous. See how impeccable coverage and a perfectly clean playbook for automation are essential for modern cybersecurity.

MTTR: Think your response time is fast? Think again. We reveal how Safe XDR’s integration with Microsoft Copilot for Security achieves guaranteed reductions in MTTR to as little as 30 seconds, a necessity as attack timelines shrink.

Listen in and rethink your cybersecurity strategy. Because sticking to the old ways might just lead you to the next big breach.

Key Highlights

Safety Culture is Paramount: Safety is not just a set of numbers but a culture and mindset that organisations must embrace. Simon draws from his experience in the oil and gas industry, he underscores the importance of fostering a "speak-up" culture in cybersecurity, where employees are encouraged to report near misses without fear of punishment.

Continuous Education is Key: Cybersecurity threats continually evolve, and organisations must invest in continuous education to keep their teams informed about the latest threats, such as social engineering and phishing attacks. Simon highlights the importance of tailoring education to different roles within an organisation to ensure relevance.

Understanding Your Technology Stack: To secure your organisation effectively, you must first understand your technology stack comprehensively. Simon advises organisations to have a clear understanding of their assets, both in terms of hardware and software, and regularly monitor for new infrastructure and applications.

Accountability at All Levels: Cyber risk should be owned and understood by business leadership, not just the CISO or CIO. Simon stresses the importance of accountability, with executives and the board taking responsibility for cyber risk, which ultimately helps in aligning cybersecurity efforts with business goals.

Indicators of Progress: Organisations should look for indicators of progress in their cyber safety efforts. These include increased reporting of near misses, business leaders actively engaging in cybersecurity discussions, embedding security into technology teams, and implementing principles like zero trust.

Start with Business Objectives: Simon advises starting with a deep understanding of the critical outcomes of your business. By mapping technology to these business objectives, you can determine the criticality of various components, helping you prioritize your cybersecurity efforts effectively.

Simon joined Performanta as a strategic advisor because of the organisation's shared commitment to promoting safety, both in terms of the message and practical assistance.
