Smarter SOC Management Using XDR
(Interview hosted between Nick Holland, ISMG, and Chris Calvert, Respond Software)
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Chris Calvert – CTO & Co-Founder, Respond Software
The status quo is not working for today’s SOC. There are too many alerts, compounded by too few analysts and not enough time or money to properly examine every alert that comes in. So far, the standard method of SOC management has been to send the maximum amount of data to the consoles of as many analysts as a company can afford – this is not sustainable. An approach that SOC teams may not have considered is situation-based detection and response versus alert-based. By shifting SOC teams’ focus to the “situation,” they will be empowered to look through the evidence, find the root cause, remediate and ensure the bad guys don’t get to another back door.
How can SOC management be more effective? How can I utilize my people better to solve problems and projects? And how can security professionals develop a more optimal “situation” based focus using Extended Detection and Response (XDR)?
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges making SOC management more effective.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the greatest challenges of managing a SOC today?
- How do I develop a “situation” based response to managing security analysts?
- What role does XDR play in the SOC of the future?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Chris Calvert, CTO and Co-Founder of Respond Software.
