Gartner® SOC Model Guide

What if everything you thought you knew about how the security operations center (SOC) should be structured no longer applies? Buttressed by the pandemic-induced rise of remote work and rapidly increasing outsourcing arrangements, there is no one-size-fits-all model for the modern SOC.

But selecting the model that is right for your organization can be tricky, as the wrong framework can lead to a poor security posture, increased risk and overexerted security teams.

Security and risk management leaders need to be flexible, and we believe this new guide from Gartner will help you identify which model aligns best to your team’s needs.

Download the latest research for key findings and recommendations around how to:

  • Assess IT architecture roadmaps, staffing, processes and business priorities to determine the right SOC model for your organization.
  • Utilize the Gartner Hybrid-Internal-Tiered (HIT) SOC Model Guide to identify a model that most closely aligns to the requirements and needs of your organization.
  • Continuously iterate your SOC model to enable identification of necessary adjustments based on changing business needs, use cases, available resources, risks, threat landscapes and environmental factors.
