IBM X-Force Command Centres expands the global line of defense

In the day-to-day security operations of your business, your organization needs to be equipped with the right tools, expertise and leadership skills. Whether faced with an around-the-clock threat response or responding to an incident, it's nearly impossible to fully grasp the impact of security threats without experiencing them in real time. But that's an expensive lesson you'd like to avoid.

IBM® Security can help you prepare for and respond to today's most advanced threats with IBM X-Force® Command Centres. With global expertise, cognitive, and cyber simulation capabilities, IBM provides the industry's leading 24x7 security operation centres around the world.

Here, you gain a greater understanding of security best practices, the importance of implementing a security strategy, and the leadership skills required to be successful. Bring your team in for interactive simulations, and let us create a war room to help you deal with a major security issue.
