While SOCs are maturing, staffing and retention issues continue to plague critical SOC support functions. In this webcast, learn how respondents to our 2018 SOC survey are staffing their SOCs, the value of cloud-based services to augment staff and technology, and respondents' level of satisfaction with the architectures they've deployed.

In this webcast, SANS Principal Instructor Chris Crowley will discuss the following:

  • The level of staffing in SOCs
  • Outsourcing part (or all) of the SOC architecture
  • Tools and technologies SOCs use to operate efficiently
  • The value of distributed vs. centralized SOC functions
  • Relationship between SOCs and NOCs
  • Improvements resulting from integrative SOC functions for detection, prevention and response
