The Security Operations Center (SOC) of the Future
Cybersecurity defense programs rely on a Security Operations Center or SOC to detect attacks, investigate suspicious behavior and respond to security incidents. SOCs often operate on a 24/7 basis and house a team of cyber professionals in a secure facility. To be effective, SOCs must harness security technologies, streamline processes, and fine-tune threat hunting methodologies. SOCs are expensive and complex to operate. If recruiting and retaining good people was not hard enough, there are a myriad of other challenges ranging from adapting new to new threats to maximizing the value of next-generation security tools.
The goal of this focus group is to exchange ideas on how SOCs must change to meet the requirements of the 2020s. One view is this role will integrate AI and machine learning technology automating much of tasks undertaken by Security Analysts today. Others believe there will always be a significant role for human intelligence.
1. Understand the key cybersecurity challenges facing healthcare organizations?
2. Approaches to measuring the ROI of a Security Operations Center (SOC)?
3. Understand characteristics of the SOC of the Future.
