The 2018 SAN SOC Survey recap webinar, conducted in October of 2018, was hosted by Edy Almer, VP Product at Cyberbit. The webinar covered the key survey findings and certain challenges that could be overcome through the use of an automated SOC.
Almer first walked through the key survey findings. The lack of skilled staff was identified as the number one shortcoming.
“Over 60% of people surveyed think that less than half of the applicants are qualified for the position for which they are applying,” Almer said.
Almer reviewed the top metrics tracked by SOCs and discussed ways to train cybersecurity experts. One of the challenges is most cybersecurity experts have never experienced a real attack.
“Having an effective simulation of a cyberattack,” Almer said, “is something that would allow those cyber security experts to train the same way fighter pilots train.”
After a review of on the possibilities of automating incident response IR, Almer discussed the third takeaway from the survey—Fusing IT and OT in the SOC. Almer wrapped up the webinar with a Q&A session.
