In light of numerous recent high-profile attacks and data breaches, Security Operations Centers are taking on a more prominent role in organizations as executives aim to improve their security programs. While a Security Operations Center (SOC) is capable of improving security, effectively implementing and managing the many functions of a SOC can be a major challenge. Information security managers must balance people, process, and procedure in order to operate a SOC that is effective and works within the constraints of the organization.

The Security Operations Center Summit will bring together top experts for two days of in-depth talks and panel discussions around building, operating, and growing a SOC. Attendees will hear from and interact with top experts who have faced many of the same challenges SOCs encounter within their organizations.
