Abstract: As organizations adopted remote work models and migrated over to the cloud, there has been an addition of newer attack surfaces, making global infrastructures even more vulnerable. Security Operations Center (SOC) transformation is key to future-proofing security and lays the foundation to cyber resiliency and effective threat remediation. SOCs comprise elements that defend against various cyber threats and follow a defense-in-depth approach to cybersecurity. SOC teams are designed to analyze, detect, monitor, respond to, and remediate security incidents in ways that benefit organizations and enhance customer reputation. Driving operational excellence can help improve every aspect of business operations and enable SOC teams to stay ahead of the curve when dealing with the latest cybersecurity threats. This webinar highlights the top strategies SOC teams utilize to mitigate threats, what’s needed for effective SOC management, key traits of good threat intelligence collection, top SOC monitoring technologies, security policy drafting, incident response detection measures, and threat remediation.
