What is SOC (Security Operations Center)?

SOC, Security Operations Center; is a team of cyber security experts, including the detection, monitoring, analysis of an organization’s cyber security incidents and the continuous improvement of the organization’s cyber security situation. In this process, team members take part in ensuring cyber security of the organization by using various technological solution combinations.

The security operations center is a command center where the relevant security information of the organization such as network, servers, website, database and application is received and associated from the information technology infrastructure and SIEM (Security Information and Event Management). The SOC team associates threat management with other systems through integration and automation, reducing the burden of monitoring, reporting, data sharing, and ensuring security operation consistency.
