In part one of our Security Operations Centre (SOC) series, we introduced the SOC and why your business needs one. Part two will further explore why outsourcing your information and security to a 3rd party Security Operations Centre could be a great option for your business.

‘I don’t have time’

One problem that many businesses face when it comes to managing their information and security is lack of time. Outsourcing to a 3rd party SOC can save your business heaps of time, and therefore money. Many 3rd party SOCs, such as Falanx, will monitor your business 24/7, so you don’t have to worry about it. They’ll even produce data logs and reports, which you can present to your management or board. Free up valuable internal resources whilst benefitting from accountability and peace of mind.

‘I don’t have the expertise’

Hiring new staff to manage your SOC is expensive and time-consuming. Outsourcing to a 3rd party takes away hiring and training costs, and you can feel assured that your business’s information and security is being handled by experts. When you outsource your SOC, you benefit from a dedicated team of Cyber Security experts with extensive experience in incident monitoring and response.

‘I don’t have the tech’

Outsourcing to a 3rd party SOC means all the tools are already in place and ready to go as soon as you sign on the dotted line. Of course, your outsourced SOC will work with you to tailor to your business’s unique needs. You can be assured that your third party SOC will have robust tech in place to analyse incident and response processes, aggregate, correlate and analyse data, and keep on top of threats.
