Audio link: Federal Tech Talk with John Gilroy: #558 .
Many federal organizations have Secure Operations Centers (SOCs) and have never stepped back to see what the best practices are to manage them. Probably because the team is working 24 hours a day to stop malicious actors.
This is an interview that takes a look at several options that can bring relief to a beleaguered team that works at a SOC.
In May of 2018, the Department of Homeland Security released a list of guidelines. During the interview, Mike talks about how to implement strategies like risk identification, vulnerability reduction, threat reduction, and consequence mitigation.
