One thing that all emergencies require is a quick response. However, this isn’t always possible or easy when there are multiple decision-makers involved and when dedicated meeting space isn’t available to discuss potential courses of action. While a Security Operations Center serves as a centralized place for incoming alerts and incidents to be identified, assessed and responded to in a cohesive manner, there is also a need at times to extend the reach of a SOC past the four walls of a command center.
At the core of any organization’s security plan is where all the individual security elements come together. Some call this the security operations center (SOC), some call this a command center, but all of these have one thing in common: they serve as the nucleus of a security plan that brings multiple sensors, decision-making functions, and visual representations together into a single pane of glass view for operators and management. The most daunting task for a lot of these security leaders is actually bringing it all together.
