SANS Report: Closing the Critical Skills Gap for Modern and Effective SOCs
Any successful security operations center (SOC) will combine skilled people, effective processes and efficient technology.
SANS research has shown that skilled talent is the prime prerequisite to enable organizations to define critical SOC processes, create use cases, architect effective security solutions, and efficiently deploy, operate and maintain security systems. From that skills base, sophisticated technology and tools can be used as a force multiplier.
CISOs and SOC managers who can reduce or close their critical skills gaps have the highest probability of minimizing business impact from cyber attacks when budgets and staffing are constrained.
