Dataminr’s quick guides to building and optimizing up SOCs
Real-time information is crucial in detecting and responding to potentially disruptive events and fine-tuning risk management strategies.
As security teams increasingly face multidimensional threats, risks and opportunities, it’s key to ensure your company’s security operation center (SOC) has access to a diversity of relevant, real-time information.
A well-equipped SOC can provide your company with a time-advantage against emerging crises. With access to real-time insights into emerging and potential threats, SOCs are empowered to act and disseminate the right information to protect your staff, stakeholders, and company assets.
With remote working and the “new normal” yet to stabilize globally due to COVID-19 and its cascading effects (e.g. supply chain disruption, rise in cyber crime, etc.), real-time alert-led SOCs are crucial in keeping leaders ahead of unexpected changes at the local, national, and global level where your staff and customers may reside.
