Michael Morris, Director of Global Business Development, EndaceCyber security teams around the globe are embarking on a variety of “modernization” initiatives, as they try to keep up with the dynamic threat landscape, but what are the must-have elements if you are looking to modernize your SOC?

You won’t want to miss this episode of the Endace Packet Forensic files as I talk with Phillip Solakov, Client Solutions Director for Optiv Canada, as he shares his view of what “SOC Modernization” means and what’s driving these efforts.

Phillip explains some of the biggest issues SOC teams are facing and things they are working on to overcome these challenges. He drills into how alert fatigue is compounded with more detection tools, more telemetry and why it is becoming critical for more automation in SOC processes and tools.

Finally, Phillip highlights some things SOC teams are still missing with the continuously expanding attack surface, and he gives some examples of how these gaps can still be addressed with the right security architecture and mindset.
