ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
The SOC of the Future – Bringing Order to Chaos
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Bruce Hembree – Field Chief Technology Officer Cortex, Palo Alto Networks
Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are often characterized by chaos. The volume and sophistication of security attacks is increasing at a rate that makes it tough for SOCs to have people, processes, and technologies in their right places. So what would the ideal SOC look like? What kind of talent would you need to attract? How do tools like automation, advanced analytics and AI optimize and refine responses to today’s machine speed attacks? And how do I make the right technology investments to meet future cybersecurity attacks today?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have adjusted to recent events.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the top skill sets you see that will be needed in the future for the SOC and why?
- How much do you trust automation for your security processes and where is the lack of trust created?
- What is the biggest technology-related challenge your organization faces in responding to security incidents, relative to the SOC?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Bruce Hembree, Field Chief Technology Officer Cortex at Palo Alto Networks.
