Synopsis

We are in the times where security is moving up on the boards' agenda and we often hear about the Security Operations Centre (SOC) as one of the key services required to keep "bad guys" out.

But, there are many ways a SOC can be run and many details are often overlooked or not considered whilst operating a SOC. This may lead to an unrealistic expectation on what a SOC can deliver.

This event will help you understand what a SOC is and the various operating models and most importantly what a SOC isn’t.

At the event we will cover the following topics and questions:

  • What is a SOC?
  • SOC - Do you need one?
  • Is it good to go the MSP way (Managed Service Provider) or not?
  • What does building a SOC look like, what do you need to consider?
  • What else can the SOC do?
  • Tips & Tricks
