Modernizing the SOC is one of the latest trends cyber security teams are undertaking to stay current and on a level playing field against today’s threat actors. Whether it is adapting to simply keep up with the volume of threats or implementing AI and ML technologies to find and prevent more sophisticated threat vectors SecOps need to improve and upgrade.

In this episode of the Endace Packet Forensic files, I talk with seasoned SOC Director, Kamal Khlefat, now Product Manager at LinkShadow, who shares his perspectives on the movement to modernize the SOC.

Kamal gives his insight into where most SOC teams are struggling and the gaps organizations have in their cybersecurity defenses. He shares some observations about what customers are doing to handle ever-increasing alert volumes and the fatigue analysts suffer in their relentless effort to investigate and troubleshoot every indicator of compromise. And, finally, Kamal highlights some of the differences he is seeing between various industry verticals like governments, financial, energy and retail.
