The increased complexity of the federal IT enterprise has put a strain on agency security operations centers (SOCs). Recent studies have found that cyber threats are growing more sophisticated and difficult to detect, requiring SOCs to strengthen their monitoring abilities and improve their agility. Given budget and staffing constraints, SOC optimization is critical to making that happen.
At this event, cyber experts from across government will discuss strategies for improving the maturity of the SOC—increasing its ability to manage the threat landscape by better leveraging existing resources.
