Answer the Threat: SOC’s Role in Cybersecurity

News

In this rapidly developing and evolving technological world that we live in, many businesses have now embraced digital processes into their workflow. The paper trail of sensitive information you can typically find in a business establishment has been significantly reduced, what with the introduction of digital information cloud storage servers. However, the risk of security breaches has not disappeared. As what Cambridge Analytica’s infamous Facebook data breach has shown, it can happen to virtually any company. Fortunately, companies are realizing the importance of strengthening their cybersecurity systems. One popular option nowadays is to outsource to facilities that solely focus on cybersecurity services: Security Operation Centers. Read on to find out their functions, and how they can help stronghold data intelligence.
 
What are Security Operations Centers?
 
A security operations center (SOC) is an establishment responsible for monitoring and analyzing an organization’s cybersecurity procedures on a regular basis. These SOCs have a team of information security experts, made up of security analysts and engineers that detect, analyze, and respond to cybersecurity incidents and threats. The range of their skills and specialties expand beyond a company’s IT department, as they are trained to respond to high-level security threats. They do this through different processes and solutions based on the difficulty level of the threat at hand.
 
How Security Operations Centers Work
 
Once an SOC is notified of a cybersecurity threat, they have 72 hours to inform the client company of the breach. This highlights the importance of managed SOCs who operate round the clock as opposed to a company’s work hour-bound IT department. This also removes the costly burden from the company of creating, training, and managing their own cybersecurity team. SOCs work with the organization’s incident response teams to assure that the security issues are quickly addressed.
 
Managed SOCs not only respond to cybersecurity threats, but are also tasked to detect threats before they even happen. They monitor network activity, servers, websites, and applications for any indication of potential incidents. The information they gather  helps the local response team with the information they need to address the threat.
