What are SOCs?

A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a facility where enterprise information systems (eg. web sites, databases, data centres and servers, networks, etc) are monitored, assessed, and defended.  Depending on the nature of the SOC, organisations may offer a variety of services including monitoring, detection, threat hunting, incident management, log analysis, forensic imaging, malware analysis, reverse engineering, mitigation advice and general good practice guidance.
