Supercharge your SOC processes with SOAR

A lot has changed in the security operations world in the last 5 to 10 years. More and more security tools are available, infrastructures have grown more complex and interconnected, and security teams are moving away from static rule-based alerts to more context-driven analyses using behavioural analysis.

Despite these evolutions many SOCs still suffer from age old problems, i.e. alert fatigue and noise. While automation may alleviate some of the repetitive actions needed to triage and respond to individual alerts, to really get the benefit from SOAR requires re-engineering your SOC processes and procedures to make sure these are suited to workflow automation.

In this talk I'll discuss considerations for a successful SOAR implementation, whether you are in the planning phase, or have already embarked on this journey.

This talk will provide practical advice on:
  • SOC process structure and organisation
  • Tailoring workflow development to suit your end goals
  • Effective collaboration and teamwork
Metrics, measurements, and demonstrating the business value of your SOAR investment.
