Overview

Join survey author Christopher Crowley as he co-chairs the SANS SOC Summit June 5-6, 2017.

SOCs need to provide active defense against live, often unknown threats, while measuring their security success with metrics. Just how satisfied are organizations with their SOCs in these areas? Do they experience better service with cloud-based managed providers or are in-house SOCs most effective? And what did respondents to the new SANS SOC survey indicate that they'd like to see in their future SOCs?

These and other questions will be answered in this second part of a two-part webcast releasing the results of the 2017 SANS Survey on Security Operations Centers. Attend this webcast to, learn:

  • Functionality respondents most value in their SOCs
  • Whether or not they are more satisfied with cloud-based SOC services or their in-house SOC teams
  • Who's measuring success of SOC operations and how they are measuring success
  • What's on respondents' wish lists for SOC operations in 2018
