The recent spike of high profile security breaches has caused many organizations to question their current security program. With the ever increasing volume of data that organizations need to maintain, manage and protect, cyber security is becoming a daunting challenge. Organizations are left asking themselves, “Is our ability to safeguard sensitive information adequate enough to protect our business critical assets? Are we focusing on the right areas of the cyber security discipline?” Faced with these challenges, many organizations are considering implementing an enterprise security operations center (SOC).While a SOC will significantly improve the security posture of an organization by placing emphasis on monitoring, vulnerability reduction and incident response, the process of implementing one can create copious amounts of planning, resources and budget to even get started.
In this white paper, VioPoint will compare developing an internal or external security operations center by focusing on challenges such as physical location, personnel & staff, technology & tools and processes; all necessary things to consider when challenged with the question of whether to build or buy.
