The past years have shown that perimeter protection, i.e. security precautions at interfaces between private and public networks, is no longer sufficient to identify and ward off cyber attacks. A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a centralised unit dealing with security issues at an organisational and technical level. The corporate network is monitored and alarms are analysed and checked around the clock. Thus, among the high amount of data, which the monitoring systems and sensors in the entire network provide, actual attacks are detected and warded off in time.
For many companies it is not possible to operate such a centre, highly specialised in terms of technology as well as personnel, themselves. With more than 15 years of experience and experts from most different areas of information security, SEC Consult offers their customers exactly this specialisation.
