A lot of significant cyber-attacks happened in 2021 increasing the pressure on Security Operations Centers. The regulatory environment is also constantly changing, with increasingly strict conditions. The world does not fear of the Cloud anymore, and this changes the lives of the SOCs. The role and importance of the SOC’s continues to grow, but the profession as a whole is challenged by the ongoing shortage of professionals. Vendor compliance also has an effect on SOCs, which needs to be dealt with. In 2021, we have invested a lot of time and money to build fully-secured SOC facilities, yet almost overnight we have to reorganise the entire SOC working environment.

SOC’s Summit provides intensive and immersive knowledge to help analysts, consultants and managers in finding best practical next steps to develop themselves, the security systems and their processes.
