What is a SOC, and do you really need one? A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a facility where security analysts utilize forensic tools and threat intelligence to hunt, investigate and respond to cyber threats in real-time. Equipped with advanced tools and expertise, a SOC protects an organization from known and unknown threats that can bypass traditional security technologies. So in short, yes—you need a SOC to adequately protect against any and all cyber threats. Are you ready for an in-house Security Operations Center? If you’re thinking about building an internal SOC, start by asking these critical questions:
Is there budget allocated on an annual basis?
Can you support a 24x7 in-house operation?
Do you have enough staff to build a SOC team?
Do they have the necessary knowledge and skills?
Who will design the physical SOC site?
Who will document SOC processes and procedures?
Who will develop a training program?
How will you interpret and deliver threat intelligence insights?
How will you demonstrate value to the executive team and board of directors?
