Building a Successful SOC: Detect earlier, respond faster
Download the executive summary

Acutely aware of the adverse business impact of security incidents, organisations are seeking to reduce their exposure and keep their assets secure. Building a successful Security Operations Centre (SOC) can greatly enhance the ability to detect and disrupt cyber attacks, protecting the business from harm.

A SOC serves as the eyes and ears of an organisation, sounding the alarm when suspicious or anomalous activity is detected and enabling a rapid response to reduce the potential impact and severity of security incidents. Without a SOC, organisations lack real-time visibility of threats, impeding their ability to protect business critical assets and effectively manage information risks.

Building a Successful SOC explores the key elements that are integral to optimising a SOC’s performance, realising operational efficiency and pursuing innovation. It equips organisations with a practical understanding of how to design, establish and enhance a SOC that is both empowered by the business, and aligned with business requirements.
