Strategy 3: Build a SOC Structure to Match Your Organizational Needs | 41

Blueprint • 2023-05-22

In this episode we discuss how to decide on the right org structure and capabilities of your SOC. This includes questions like tiered vs. tierless models, which capabilities the SOC should focus on, centralized vs. distributed SOCs, outsourcing of duties and staff augmentation considerations, and also where the SOC might sit in the larger chart of your organization. Every SOC needs to be tailored to best meet the mission, and chapter 3 - "Build a SOC Structure to Match Your Organizational Needs" will help you get there.

This special season of the Blueprint Podcast is taking a deep dive into MITRE’s 11 Strategies of a World-Class Cyber Security Operations Center. Each episode John will break down a chapter of the book with the book’s authors Kathryn Knerler, Ingrid Parker, and Carson Zimmerman.
