Closing the Critical Skills Gap for Modern and Effective Security Operations Centers (SOCs): Survey Results

  • Wednesday, 29 Jul 2020 1:00PM EDT (29 Jul 2020 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Barbara Filkins, John Pescatore

Any successful security operations center (SOC) will combine skilled people, effective processes and efficient technology. Previous SANS surveys have shown that the skills of the people are the prime prerequisite to enable organizations to define critical SOC processes; create use cases, hypotheses and plans; architect effective security solutions; and efficiently deploy, operate and maintain security systems. From that skills base, sophisticated technology and tools can be used as a force multiplier. CISOs and SOC managers who can reduce or close their critical skills gaps have the highest probability of minimizing business impact from cyberattacks when budgets and staffing are constrained.

Webcast attendees will learn:

  • Where hiring managers turn when sourcing potential new hires
  • Which skill areas are most sought after
  • What technologies employers wish new hires had hands-on experience using
  • Which security technologies are perceived as enabling organizations to delay or mitigate the need for additional staff

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends, John Pescatore.
