How to Design Your Security Operations Center to Work Smarter Not Harder

In today’s digital economy, data is money. If banks were the target of the last century, data is the target of this century. With increasing use of tactics like malware, spyware, and adware, coupled with the increase in connected devices — infrastructure everywhere in an organization from email servers to printers are in danger of being the source of entry for an attack.

Securing data today requires a holistic approach to security operations that starts from the boardroom on down. Integrating technology into security operations to identify, manage, and mitigate cybersecurity threats must be a top priority. That’s where security operations centers (SOCs) come in.

Our newest white paper, How to Design Your Security Operations Center to Work Smarter Not Harder done in partnership with Splunk — offers an in depth look at the integral part an SOC plays in data security. We examine some of the key considerations for improving an SOC and the role of an effective SOC team in detecting, analyzing, and responding to threats in real time.  

In this white paper you’ll learn:

  • Why your team needs to use a Security Information and Event Management Platform (SIEM)
  • How to pair a SIEM platform with Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) for optimal usage
  • The role data plays in security
  • How to automate legacy and manual processes to free up resources
  • How to optimize the design of your SOC including how to optimize your SOC team
  • What to look for in an SOC portfolio.

Data-driven decisions are increasingly required to manage and mitigate new threats and when a security operations center can work in conjunction with machines and data, your team can work smarter, not hard.
