About the report

"Deciding when to make investments in tools, and selecting the right ones, for the SOC is challenging for many organizations. Security and risk management leaders responsible for security operations should use this research to aid in making pragmatic decisions.

  • Prepare the SOC team and relevant stakeholders for a process-driven evaluation with a “premortem” analysis to reduce the chance of failed projects.
  • Align the tool selection process according to the target operating model and goals of the SOC, avoiding premature investments.
  • Make technology investments that will provide the best results against new threat vectors, address the biggest blind spots and enhance areas of the SOC with operational challenges.
  • Be flexible in case of organizational and business changes. New workflows and tools to support changes to processes and capabilities might be required."
