The Importance of Security Awareness Training
Nearly all successful cyber attacks require a user at a victim organization to make a mistake. From being tricked into giving away critical information via social engineering campaigns, to misconfigurations due to more technical users viewing security as an afterthought, security awareness training (SAT) has a place at all organizations of varying security maturity.
With a properly managed SAT program, your users go from being liabilities to acting as a human firewall immersed in security culture. Plus, SAT is usually a requirement of today’s leading cybersecurity compliance frameworks.

Strengthen Your Security Program
Cybersecurity experts agree: it’s not a matter of if – but when – your critical data and applications will be compromised due to a security breach or security event of some sort.
Even if you have technologies in place to mitigate the likelihood of your environment being compromised, you need to have a plan in place to deal with threats head-on if they do occur.
MDR can easily integrate with existing software and technologies in your IT infrastructure to enhance your organization’s overall security, keep your data protected, and detect threats that make it past your perimeter.
Mitigate Risks and Contain Attacks
While the enabling technologies behind MDR greatly reduce your chances of a cyberattack, a significant security event is still possible, even likely. How you respond to it is crucial.
If a breach in progress is detected, you have a better chance of containing the attack with our MDR service since our analysts are always watching and proactively hunting.
With Buchanan’s MDR solution, our team of analysts will take immediate action to preserve the integrity of your IT network and systems.
Couple these efforts with automated processes happening in the background – such as changing configurations in firewalls to block access, removing user accounts, or applying security patches – and your organization is well on its way to containing a breach.
Cut Costs Related to Managed Security
As IT environments – and the threats looming over them – are rapidly changing and maturing, it can be difficult to have the staff on hand to adequately address a security event within your organization.
Hiring security experts and keeping them up-to-date with the training and tools they need to do their job effectively can be quite costly.
Partnering with Buchanan for your MDR needs can alleviate this issue while providing you with security resources to act as an extension of your internal team.
Reduce Stress and Increase Productivity
With an MDR solution from Buchanan, you won’t have to stress about not having enough resources in place to properly monitor and execute a response plan in the event of a cyberattack.
Additionally, your IT team can be freed up to focus on other important, revenue-generating initiatives within your company and not have to worry about the day-to-day monitoring and analysis that comes with proper MDR.
