Topic: How SOCs Can Evolve in an Era of Advanced Cyberattacks
Cyberattacks today are more sophisticated and difficult to identify than ever. To respond to these cyber risks, today’s security operations centers (SOCs) need expertise in a variety of areas, including log monitoring and analysis, vulnerability management, incident response, and threat hunting. The recent Apache Log4j vulnerability illustrates the growing necessity for SOCs to swiftly detect, monitor, and respond to cyberthreats, as well as the key role that SOCs play in threat mitigation.
In light of recent surges in the volume of cyberattacks, it is clear that existing SOCs must evolve to respond to new and emerging threats in cyberspace. The widespread adoption of cloud and digital transformation initiatives has further augmented the need for SOC analysts and other SOC professionals to enhance their skills. This webinar will discuss the measures that today’s cybersecurity professionals need to implement to mitigate the risks associated with advanced cyberattacks.
