 |  Nurah

Some examples of why you might need a SOC include: 

  • You want visibility and actionable remedies for all your cyber threats 
  • You are running an online service for the public 
  • You host sensitive databases which are accessed by staff on your premises, by remote staff, or by customers or partners 
  • You have several different office locations, and home workers and a unified security function delivers cost savings 
  • You share sensitive data with other organisations 
  • You need to demonstrate security compliance to your customers and stakeholders 

What Is A Security Operations Center (SOC) and How Does It Work?  

A SOC is a centralized function within an organisation employing people, processes, and technology to continuously monitor and improve an organization’s security posture while preventing, detecting, analysing, and responding to cybersecurity incidents. 

A SOC acts like the hub or central command post, taking in telemetry from across an organization’s IT infrastructure, including its networks, devices, appliances, and information stores, wherever those assets reside. The proliferation of advanced threats places a premium on collecting context from diverse sources. Essentially, the SOC is the correlation point for every event logged within the organization that is being monitored. For each of these events, the SOC must decide how they will be managed and acted upon. 

What is it really? 

A SOC is a group of specially trained staff that can deliver a combination of security services to help protect and proactively improve an organization’s security posture as a managed service by analysing data produced by the technology in-use for breaches or potential breaches.

What does a SOC do? 

The key aims of a SOC are: 

  • To detect and respond to threats, keeping the information held on systems and networks secure 
  • To increase resilience by learning about the changing threat landscape (both malicious and non-malicious, internal and external) 
  • To identify and address negligent or criminal behaviours 
  • To derive business intelligence about user behaviours in order to shape and prioritise the development of technologies
