Since the debut of SEC450, we've always had students interested in a matching course covering the management and leadership aspects of running a SOC. If you like the topics in this podcast and would like to learn more about Blue Team leadership and management, check out the new MGT551: Building and Leading Security Operations Centers. This new course is designed for Security Team leaders looking to build, grow and operate a security operation center with peak efficiency. It's a hands-on technical leadership course, that takes you through everything from scoping threat groups to use case creation, threat hunting, planning, SOC maturity and detection assessment and much much more.
