A Tale of Two SOCs: Striving for SOC Effectiveness

What distinguishes a highly effective SOC from one that is lower-performing? Survey results from the second annual Devo SOC Performance ReportTM highlight three key attributes that can make or break a SOC’s effectiveness:

  • People-first mentality: 67% of high-performing SOCs actively invest in training programs to develop and retain security talent
  • Organizational synergy: 73% of high-performing SOCs are strongly aligned with business goals
  • Technology adoption: 80% of high-performing SOCs are likely or very likely to invest in new technologies

In this panel discussion, moderator Sean Martin of ITSPmagazine is joined by cybersecurity leaders who share their experiences establishing highly effective security teams. The group also discusses key lessons for improving the effectiveness of security operations.
