The security operations center is the front line of defending the organization from cyber threats. SOC analysts every day deal with challenges, including having too many alerts to properly investigate, tools that dont support their workflows and of course analyst burnout and the skills crisis. These challenges take new meaning when the SOC itself is working from home in light of COVID-19-related lockdowns and self-quarantines. Much attention has been paid to the increase in remote workers and SOHO tools, but how equipped are our security teams, tools and processes to ensure cybersecurity when what they are defending is changing rapidly AND when they are working home?

In this webinar, Jason Bevis of Awake Security will discuss key considerations in keeping the SOC fully operational and effective, how to address challenges head-on and how this might be a good time to build resiliency in the security operations process.

Join this webinar to learn more about:

  •             Asset visibility and dealing with inventory difficulties
  •             Key guidelines and awareness tips for end-users
