A Security Operations Center (SOC) is an organizational framework for cybersecurity, staffed by cybersecurity professionals who monitor an organization's security, analyze potential or current breaches, and respond accordingly. The SOC's goal is to diagnose, evaluate, and respond to cybersecurity events using technology solutions and established procedures. SOCs mainly operate 24/7, with security analysts monitoring environmental data for emerging threats and responding as needed. The SOC manages and enhances an organization's overall security posture.
