Of all the cybersecurity disciplines, one is uniquely and intrinsically connected to the human being: security operations. The success of the modern security operations center, despite the infusion of automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, remains heavily dependent on people. This is largely due to the vast amounts of data a SOC must ingest – a product of an attack surface ceaselessly expanding in the age of professionalized cybercrime and the borderless enterprise.

As if your detection and response efforts needed any more reminding, the tenuous state of geopolitics has left many security operations teams anxiously anticipating an uptick in attacks targeting Western interests.

Security operations centers (SOCs) exist to deliver sustained monitoring and response capabilities. Staff members are a core pillar of this mission. Each SOC should have clearly articulated roles and levels for its personnel. This helps to establish fair practices for hiring, training, promotion, compensation and performance expectations.

Siemplify, now part of Google Cloud, is on a mission to re-envision managed security operations. Typical SOC challenges haven’t changed much over the years, it’s still the same familiar list – growing attack volumes, higher levels of threat sophistication, analyst skills and hiring gaps, and the need to quickly adapt.

Business guru Peter Drucker is famous for saying that you can't manage what you don't measure, and those words ring especially true in the security operations center (SOC). The SOC is home to great responsibility to the business, as it sits as ground zero for threat detection and response. But it also can be unwieldy due to a number of challenges, including an overreliance on manual processes, disparate sources of information and intelligence, and a lack of skills and people power to handle all the alerts and cases coming through.
