Security Operations Centers (SOC) are a constantly staffed location on the facility site where staff monitors and provides responses to security-related events on a campus, both cyber and physical. Staff working in this space require an efficient, ergonomic environment that allows them to easily receive notifications, process them, and deploy a response if required. Staff must be free from distraction to ensure they have a maximum opportunity to maintain a safe environment for employees and the public throughout the facility. The 24/7 monitoring provided by a SOC provides organizations with an advantage to defend against incidents and intrusions, regardless of source, time of day, or attack type (cyber or physical).
Guidepost Solutions works with clients to understand their staffing and procedural requirements when developing new SOC installation designs. During this process we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of components from previously designed SOCs and their possible application in the new location. Our experience is unparalleled in the delivery of SOC solutions and go beyond the monitoring of technology platforms that truly provide intelligence fusion and predictive intelligence functions.
