The function of a Security Operations Centre (SOC) and its team, is to monitor, detect, investigate, and respond to cyber and physical threats around the clock. Security operations teams are charged with monitoring and protecting many assets, such as physical properties, data, business systems, and brand integrity (Intellectual Property/IP).

As one of the core component of an organization's overall cybersecurity framework, Cyber Security Operations teams act as the central point of collaboration in coordinated efforts to monitor, assess, and defend against cyberattacks. Usually in most organisation or frameworks, Physical SOC and Cyber SOC are implemented separately as they require different skills, resources and infrastructure to manage.

Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) are a business that offer security services to businesses and organisations in a manner of Cyber SOC or Physical SOC. If your organization require to engage an MSSP and you require advice on where to start, reach out to us and we can provide advice from RFQ/RFT phase to delivery of SOC services.

In addition to understanding inner workings of MSSP and a SOC, it is important to know how they are used. Using an MSSP involves outsourcing the management and monitoring of security systems and devices. Sometimes the SOC has to be implemented on clients' premise based on hard client requirements. With critical security systems in the hands of an external entity, more governance and scrutiny needs to occur to ensure organisations are on path to meeting their Cyber Security strategies.
