SANS 2022 SOC Survey

It’s time for a make-over. For its fifth birthday, the SANS 2022 SOC Survey is getting a whole new look.

As in years past, Chris Crowley and Barbara Filkins will explain everything they, and the SANS community, have learned about optimizing SOC operations in the past 12 months—they’ll also jump into the cloud, wave their wands at orchestration, and wade into the muddy waters created by remote work.

They’ll debate the promise of AI and ML, and answer the “Is it making a difference?” question based on survey results from you—SOC managers and analysts. Lastly, they’ll look at what’s ahead as we all (sort of) move back to the office and must navigate the age of hybrid work.

Also, new for 2022 is a revised format—no more one-hour survey results review and a separate panel discussion on a different day. Instead, we’ve packed all that and more into a two-hour interactive event powered by a dedicated Slack workspace where attendees, SANS authors, and survey sponsors can interact with one another.

Key topics will include:

• A State of the State: Global SOC Demographics

• The Technographic Reality—What’s Deployed and Why?

• The Good, the Bad, and the Reality About SOC Staffing

• Forget the Hype—What’s on the 2022 Capability Must-Have List?

• How Should a Healthy SOC Budget Be Measured?
