How to build a SOC - Part 1

In this SOC it to me edition of the Exploring Information Security Podcast, I talk with Paul Jorgensen of IBM to figure out how to build a SOC.

Fellow co-host of the PVC Security podcast, Paul (@prjorgensen) spends most of his day thinking about socks. Once he's decided on a pair, he goes out into the world to help organizations build a SOC or security operations center. He's got extensive knowledge of how to put one together and that showed in the recording. For the first time in EIS history, we have a three part series.

In part 1 we discuss:

  • We define what a SOC is
  • We discuss it's structure
  • What skills are needed for a SOC
