Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Concurrent Session
Meet three different organizations, all with similar security operation problems. See how each institution came up with a different solution to meet its SOC challenges, including starting a barebones organization, hiring a managed security service, and becoming a service for the rest of their system. This highly interactive discussion will revolve around the challenges, as well as the key considerations that need to be considered, when building a security operations center.

Outcomes: Learn how others have solved operational issues (e.g., personnel, budget) * Understand the constraints and common issues faced when building a SOC * Be able to influence or build your own SOC
