MSOC is a facility that houses an information security team responsible for monitoring and analyzing an organization’s security posture on an ongoing basis.
Security operation centres monitor and analyze activity on networks, servers, endpoints, databases, applications, websites, and other systems, looking for anomalous activity that could be indicative of a breach or compromise of security. The SOC is responsible for ensuring that potential security incidents are correctly identified, analyzed, defended, investigated, and reported.
No business with an online presence is immune to a cyber-attack, and the financial, physical, and legal implications of an attack on any business can be absolutely devastating.
