The SOC's Unique Role in Creating Organizational Value
The role of a Security Operations Center (SOC) is to persistently aggregate, assess, manage and measure information around people performing roles in key processes that impact the business using technology to provide real-time situational awareness and response as possible. As well, it relies on accurate, intelligent, and actionable information to discover, detect, and respond to threats. So, at best, it provides operational business process intelligence and threat and risk intelligence.
To achieve that ideal state, organizations must adopt a process or methodology: A path to value
ASG, my company, created a methodology 15 years ago called the ASG Path to Value. It has been instrumental in creating value for our clients. It also has fueled corporate growth and influence in the risk, resilience and security market.
