Some organizations have formal security operations centers (SOCs). Formal 24x7 SOCs are tightly secured areas where teams of dedicated analysts carefully monitor for threats around the clock, every day of the year. Analysts are checking their organization’s enterprise security controls to identify possible signs of intrusion and compromise that may require a response by the organization’s incident responders.
The purpose of this white paper is to show you how you can successfully build a SOC, even with limited resources. The paper explains the basics of SOCs, providing details of what SOCs mean in terms of people, processes, and technology. Finally, you’ll learn the methodology of building a SOC with limited resources, focusing on tactics to make your rollout smooth and successful. After reading this paper, you’ll be able to significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your team.
