Keynote: To SOC Or Not To SOC

Many solution providers still debate the merits of creating and maintaining a security operations center vs. outsourcing it to a provider. Creating and maintaining a world class security operations center is a venture not lightly taken for supporting multiple clients. A SOC can provide increased security and rapid response for customers but certainly comes at a cost in terms of the staff needed to support it, the processes and technology for a center that is operational 24/7. This session will provide an interactive discussion on the pros and cons from a solution provider point of view on creating and maintaining a security operations center along with insight on how to determine if your organization is delivering the highest quality service to your customers.
