Security operation center – SOC
SERMA Safety and Security’s SOC Managé team constantly monitors an organisation’s IT infrastructures and systems. Its aim? To detect intrusion attempts, analyse risks and respond to cyber threats in real time. This operational security centre is of vital importance in IT protection. It guarantees proactive and reactive monitoring of security events. It protects your company’s digital assets and sensitive data from malicious acts and hacker attacks. Find out how our SOC solutions ensure the security policy of your IT system.
What are the main objectives of a SOC?
- Early Threat Detection: Continuously monitor systems, networks, and applications to identify suspicious activities or signs of intrusion. The mission is to analyze risks and cyber threats to provide a rapid response and minimize potential damage to your databases and confidential information.
- Incident Analysis: Once a threat is detected, the SOC conducts in-depth investigations of incidents to understand their nature, scope, and potential impact on the organization. This data is used to take appropriate measures to contain and neutralize the threat.
- Event Response: Remediation of cyberattacks and the implementation of actions and strategies to effectively respond to web security incidents. This may include isolating compromised systems, blocking malicious IP addresses, resetting compromised passwords, and any other crisis management methods.
- Security Intelligence: Continuously monitor the evolving risk landscape and attack techniques to adapt to new tactics used by cybercriminals.
- Coordination with Other Security Teams: Collaborate with cybersecurity teams, operations managers, incident response organizations, and other internal stakeholders for a comprehensive approach to organizational protection.
- Continuous Improvement: Regularly assess SOC performance, identify weaknesses, conduct penetration testing, and enhance it to strengthen the ability to detect and respond to incidents. The SOC must continue to evolve securely, counter vulnerabilities, malware campaigns, and emerging attack techniques.
- Regulatory Compliance: Ensure that SOC activities are in compliance with security standards and regulations applicable to your industry.
In summary, the primary goal of a SOC is to establish a security architecture capable of ensuring digital trust in the face of cyber threats. This is achieved by considering the organization’s entire ecosystem to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems and data.
Our team of IT experts offers a range of services to prevent, detect, and respond to computer threats to your information systems. With our service and SOC, we collect, correlate, and analyze events generated by endpoints, whether it’s on your firewalls, in Active Directory, on your servers, workstations, connected devices, and mobile devices through various SIEM solutions.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions can be implemented within your infrastructure, on-premises or in the cloud, or outsourced to SERMA Safety and Security or the vendor.
We ensure security incident response by managing the solutions in place (SIEM, EDR, XDR, NDR, SOAR), or by directly addressing compromised machines. Our experts have expertise in developing custom detection algorithms. They establish protocols so that each detection platform benefits from dedicated automation and orchestration, allowing for a rapid response to cyberattacks (SOAR).
