IDC PlanScape: IT Security — Create a Security Operations Center

By: Mike ChappleAdjunct Research Advisor


This IDC study provides a step-by-step guide for building or enhancing a security operations center. While some organizations may decide to quickly ramp up full-scale SOC operations, this is often cost prohibitive. IT leaders seeking to iteratively develop SOC capabilities may choose to begin with a virtual SOC that has a limited and well-defined scope. They may then incrementally increase the capabilities and responsibilities of the SOC until reaching the desired operational status. This document enables senior executives to plan and create an SOC.

"The security operations center serves as the nerve center of an organization's cybersecurity program," says Mike Chapple. "IT leaders that make investments in staffing and equipping an SOC will gain insight into their organization's security posture and increase their ability to react promptly to cybersecurity incidents."
