Gartner® Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2023

It’s time for SecOps to adapt. According to Gartner®, “even with previous advancements made in data science and analytical interventions, [the breadth of security operations] tools and services have led to an inundation of data, disparity in tooling, and ultimately end users managing the complexities of triage and analysis across a multitude of platforms.”

In 2023 and beyond, security and risk management leaders must balance increased visibility, better prioritization of risks, and a focus on business outcomes. In the 2023 Hype Cycle™ for Security Operations, Gartner provides an overview of emerging technologies within the security operations space to help organizations:

  • Implement continuous threat exposure management (CTEM) concepts.
  • Apply a business-relevant approach to improve the breadth and relevance of detection and response.
  • Maximize automation for the reduction of response times.
