A SOC means many things to different people. Lets discuss in this webinar on what a SOC actually means? What is it supposed to deliver? Why is a SOC needed? How to build and maintain a SOC?

John Pescatore of the SANS Institute will speak about making the SOC effective, efficient and valuable to the organization. Attendees will learn about the phases of SOCs, definitions, the future and how to get resources. The session also will address common pitfalls - and how to avoid them.
