Managed Cyber Defence

Next Generation Security Operation Centers (SOC)

The Future of Security Operations

We were delighted to host an event on 'Managed Cyber Defence' on Tuesday, 28 February 2023. The event allowed security leaders to share thoughts and experiences on the changing face of security operations and the next generation of Security Operation Centers.

Our Managed Cyber Defence team, including Ross Foley - Director/Managed Cyber Defence Lead at PwC UK, shared their experiences of building their next generation Security Operation Centers - utilising Palo Alto Networks technologies - which focused on the extensive use of automation to provide 24x7 detection and response capabilities to clients across the globe.

At a time when the volume of security telemetry and alerts was rising exponentially, our team shared their insights on how they successfully broke the link between people and data, future-proofing our Security Operations. Our subject matter experts then led discussions on topics such as:

  • How can you drive automation within your Security Operation Centers?
  • What technologies will you need in a next generation Security Operation Centers - is Security Information and Event Management enough or is Security Orchestration Automation & Response the future?
  • How can you demonstrate return on investment and business value from security operations?
