24 May See you at the SANS SOC Summit #socsummit
Looking forward to 2016 SANS SOC Summit this week
It’s late May, so it must be time for the annual SANS SOC Summit, https://www.sans.org/event/security-operations-center-summit-2016, held this Wednesday and Thursday at the Hilton Doubletree Crystal City just inside the DC Beltway. If there was any doubt that the broad security community is finally starting to realize the centrality of SOC operations to managing / reducing enterprise risk the training agenda and talks planned for this year summit should erase that doubt. At Syncurity we are delighted to see this trend because it reinforces what we have known for some time: The virtual SOC is the center of future security operations in mature organizations, and the best way to deal with the ever-increasing volume of alerts is to help speed up the humans responding to them.
As we look ahead today one of the #SOCsummit we are especially excited about sessions like “SOC It To Me! – SOC Implementation Experiences from the Real World” featuring an experience-based discussion of best practices in SOC standup, as well as “Ten Strategies of a World-Class Cyber Security Operations Center” many of which we expect to revolve around things our platform help facilitate, such as instituting process and playbooks, accelerating human response, and creating a system of record. Day two brings us “The Evolving Role of the SOC”, which will talk about how the SOC is rapidly becoming the hub of future security operations and a critical enabler for business decisions in the modern enterprise, as well as “The Race for Cyber Talent: How to Keep Your SOC Full” which will go into depth on the challenges we as a community face around negative employment right now. Check out the full agenda here.
We’d love to talk with all of you more about how our Incident Response / vSOC platform, IR Flow, is positioned today to help solve many of these #SOC challenges of tomorrow, so be sure to stop by and visit us. In the meantime for another excellent summary of critical trends in this space check out the link below – we will see you at the Summit!
