You may have worked hard to establish what seems to be a great set of processes and threat detection technologies in your SOC. When a real-world attack eventually comes though, will the whole system work as expected? Have you ever put each component to the test? How realistic was that test? 

When it comes to assessing your SOC's capabilities there is a whole spectrum of options from atomic analytic testing, to purple teaming, to full-on adversary emulation. In this webcast we will cover each of these assessment methods, tools to facilitate testing, and why all of the above are likely necessary to fully evaluate your SOC's defensive capabilities.
