In the past, security operations (SecOps) and network operations (NetOps) were often separate teams within an organisation, with distinct responsibilities and objectives. This often led to a siloed approach, where the two teams worked independently of each other, and only interacted when a security issue arose that needed to be resolved.
However, in today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape, this approach is no longer sufficient. Security issues and network service assurance are now inextricably linked. In other words, a security breach can have a significant impact on network performance, and vice versa. For example, a DDoS attack on a network can result in degraded service for users, while a vulnerability in a network component can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data.
As a result, it is becoming increasingly important for SecOps and NetOps teams to work closely together. Rather than operating in isolation, they need to collaborate to identify and address potential security threats, while also ensuring that network performance and availability are not impacted. This might involve sharing data and insights, coordinating response efforts, and jointly developing strategies and policies to mitigate risks.
