The SOC is a key driver of your cybersecurity strategy, but many enterprises still face repeated challenges to actualizing the full value of their SOC. As the cybersecurity landscape continues to change, SOCs must evolve security operations to bolster against these challenges. Ponemon Institute, sponsored by Devo Technology, surveyed cybersecurity experts on key trends in security operations. In this presentation, we will examine the trends and barriers impacting the SOC today, and how to address them.
