Security operations (SecOps) leaders say they struggle to detect hidden and unknown threats with legacy tools, mitigating the potential threats of dark data, and overcoming resource-intensive issues to stay ahead of cyberthreats. They have to navigate these challenges while dealing with a talent shortage.
This is where security operations centers (SOCs) come in. SOCs are an integral part of organizations’ efforts to combat security threats. A SOC is a centralized, dedicated team of experts using a variety of tools to protect against threats. They identify system weaknesses proactively — detecting, analyzing and responding to threats in near real time.
But what is the best way to build a SOC and what are the key components needed to combat today's challenges?

- The key considerations for the design or improvement of an effective SOC.
- How legacy and manual processes can be automated, and the role that machine learning can play to free up scarce resources for higher-level tasks.
- And more specifically the role of a security information and event management (SIEM) solution, security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) solution, and user entity and behavior analytics (UEBA) solution in a SOC.
