Measurably Decreasing Mean-Time-To-Know With Threat Stack

In our last post, we took a look at traditional security incident response vs. the possibility to dramatically increase security velocity (which I affectionately nicknamed “spacefolding”).

We viewed this through the lens of a conventional response timeline that can take hours and days — versus seeing into exactly what occurred and decreasing the Mean Time-To-Know (MTTK) for a security incident — because all of the relevant information is visible and available to you.

In this post, we’ll take this premise into a real-world example that may be familiar to many organizations running instances on AWS. Read more “Measurably Decreasing Mean-Time-To-Know With Threat Stack”
