The number of successful data breaches continues to increase everyday. Adversaries seem to have the upper hand, as many organizations fail to effectively detect and quickly respond to these breaches. Over 80% of all breach victims learn of a compromise from third-party
notifications, not from internal security teams, and are often caught by surprise.
A Security Operations Center or SOC monitors enterprise information systems (web sites, applications, databases, data centers and servers, networks, desktops and other endpoints). The Security Operations Center allows an organization to enforce and test its security policies,
processes, procedures and activities through one central platform that monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of the individual elements and the overall security system.

Importance Of Incident Response & Digital Forensics
This course shall cover the design, deployment and operation of the SOC. Once this course is completed, you will have the skills to perform your SOC responsibilities effectively.
Here, instructors will teach you the skills to analyze and detect threats to an organization through demonstrations, labs, and lectures.

The course covers the functional areas: Communications, Network Security Monitoring, Threat Intelligence, Incident Response, Forensics, and Self-Assessment. Security Operations Centers are used to monitor, detect, respond and mitigate threats to the organization.
