With so many cyber solutions available on the market, organizations need to find a way to balance prevention with detection and response capabilities. A SOC (Security Operations Center) provides an extension of your team and delivers 24/7 capabilities. A SOC is designed to identify potential cyber security issues within the organization and isolate them in minimal time to reduce the level of impact that they can cause to business operations.
The selection of technologies and methodologies to mitigate the business impact of cyber-attacks can be challenging with a large financial overhead for businesses. The decision between an in-house SOC and the use of an outsourced one is a critical business decision to make, and it can be difficult to know which factors to start with and what to consider.
Businesses have never before been at such high risk of being targeted by threat actors and are required to make risk-based decisions on the investments that are made to improve their cyber capabilities. Here is a list of the pros and cons to help weigh up which option is the best for your business, building in-house SOC capabilities or outsourcing to an external team.
Many companies choose to outsource their security operations to avoid the significant implementation challenges that may occur. An outsourced Security Operation Center will prove to be a more cost-effective solution which allows access to a security team of experts such as CyberCX with years of industry knowledge and skills with access to Tier One security technologies.
