Focus and Features
A well functioned Security Operations Centre (SOC) assists companies in identifying, managing and remediating security attacks. The SOC is responsible for the management of technical and functional controls. The end-goal of a SOC is to improve the security posture of an organization by detecting and responding to threats and attacks before they have an impact on the business.
The primary functions of the SOC are to monitor security events from the implemented IT Security controls as well as other critical assets, and respond to events. This allows various stakeholders to have situational awareness, reduces risk and downtime, and assist with threat control prevention.
Moreover, a SOC can aid in achieving compliance to regulatory requirements through the monitoring of events against specified compliance objectives, such as providing audit log retention requirements and monitoring the effectiveness of implemented technical controls.
