Stage 4: Detect


Organisations need to have confidence that on a day-to-day basis, their business is well protected. Detecting a breach as soon as it happens is key to minimising the impact of an attack and recovering in optimal time. However, attacks are becoming more difficult to detect with criminals continually adopting new techniques and even accessing a target’s IT system, then sitting in the background collating data and commercially sensitive information without the business knowing.


Cyber Protection: Detect Stage


The detect stage is extremely important and likely to be the stage that resonates with most executives. Thinking like a hacker, knowing the latest techniques, the weakest points of a business and managing that risk is vital if a business is going to successfully protect itself.

2|SEC Consulting adopts a proactive, layered and connective approach to guard against advanced and evolving threats in the cyber security landscape. Through a retained or project-based service, our technical team will:

  • Carry out intelligent identification of anomalies and events risks;
  • Execute continuous advanced monitoring for the timely detection of threats;
  • Implement security measures to ensure operation of critical functions;
  • Align activities with industry compliance needs and ensuring all are fully tested and continually improved.


Staying ahead of cybercrime is a challenging task that requires dedicated resource 24/7/365. It is vital that any organisation monitors and identifies the risks faced, any vulnerabilities and the severity of the vulnerabilities to the business. Once this has been identified, the business can prioritise and apply IT and business administrative actions to make sure the organisation is adequately protected.

Cyber protection is a sizable task that is on every board’s priority list. However, it is important to recognise that not all risks can be completely eliminated, and no organisation has an infinite budget for this. This is why risk management at the detect stage is about managing the effects of uncertainty in a way that makes the most effective and efficient use of the budget available.
