Security Operations Center - SOC 1 Training
The function of the security operations center (SOC) is to monitor, prevent, detect, investigate, and
respond to cyber threats around the clock. SOC teams are charged with monitoring and protecting
the organization’s assets including intellectual property, personnel data, business systems, and brand
integrity. The SOC team implements the organization’s overall cybersecurity strategy and acts as the
central point of collaboration in coordinated efforts to monitor, assess, and defend against
A security operations Centre (SOC) is a centralized unit capable of handling security issues that an enterprise may come across. This unit can operate as part of the enterprise IT security team or from a secure, remote location. The SOC employs multiple security devices and operations that work together to analyze and deal with security incidents. The SOC unit is driven by industry certified professionals which include seasoned and trained engineers. The Security Operations Centre (SOC) Analysis program puts together a wide variety of modules such as cyber threats, intelligence analysis, analytics and techniques employed to extract the right kind of information at the right time at a typical SOC setup.
Highlights of the Course
Benefits of having a Security Operations Center (SOC)
A SOC is an indispensable part of the overall cyber-security strategy for an enterprise today. A robust SOC ensures continuous network monitoring, centralized visibility, and better collaboration for the IT teams in an organization.
Let us look at the benefits of the Security Operations Center:
Continuous Monitoring and Prevention: SOCs run 24 x 7 x 365, and uninterrupted operations are one of the most crucial aspects to thwart any threat over the organization’s network. SOCs ensure monitoring and prevention at all hours, even outside of standard business hours.
Effective Incident Response: SOC workflows define a standard set of procedures to be followed when the crisis hits. This reduces the time elapsed between incident detection and incident management. In addition, the SOC analysts further work on studying the threat and its implications and the probability of the same threat to re-engineer & pose a threat.
Centralized Visibility: Today’s enterprise networks have become much more complex with the advent of remote working, the Internet of things (IoT), Bring-your-own-device (BYOD), and the geographical spread of larger organizations. Effectively securing such a disparate network demands a comprehensive, modern technology stack with an integrated network visibility system which is a SOC.
Organization-wide Collaboration: An organization must have clear and transparent processes to report a security incident. A SOC brings people, processes, and technology within the same group to effectively communicate & collaborate when a threat hits. The SOC team also works towards raising awareness about new threats within the organization to its employees and other internal stakeholders.
Reduction in Cyber security costs: SOC is a centralized hub to tackle malicious attacks. It removes the need for each function, department, location, or vertical to invest in the latest preventive tools licenses and thus brings down the overall CAPEX towards cyber security.
Additionally, threat management using SOC helps to bring down the effect of a breach and the potential costs the breach may incur via data exposure, legal cases, or business reputation damage.
Compliance Management: SOC ensures regular system audits and compliance towards industry, quality systems, or government. These audits also help uncover any other lapses within the systems that may put sensitive data within the organization at risk & thus shield the organization from reputational damage and other legal challenges in the future.
