A Security Operations Center (SOC) houses IT security professionals responsible for continuously monitoring the security posture of an organization. Its goal is to detect, analyze, respond to, neutralize, and remediate cyberattacks using strong processes and a wide variety of security tools.
SOCs collect data from other IT infrastructures and hunt for threats from these data sources using various behavioral and advanced analytical techniques. Once a threat is detected, SOC admins quickly investigate the incident pattern, come up with a response plan to neutralize the impact of the incident or to contain it, and quickly execute the resolution steps to minimize the damage.
