Security Operation Centre
SOC is a team of people who are dedicated to analyzing traffic flow & monitoring threats & attacks. In the 21st century & post-pandemic, organizations of all sizes work on securing their cyber resources & technical assets. Outsourcing a SOC team has been the most recent trend for it. Organizations that want to employ a full-time IT security team with budget issues partner with a Managed IT company like Piankin.
SOC team includes security analysts, security engineers, and managers who oversee every security operation. SOC team works together to ensure security issues upon discovery.
Benefits of having a Security Operation Center
SOC helps in improving the security incident detection using continuous monitoring & analysis of data activity. After all the activity analysis on the network, endpoint servers databases, the SOC team ensures timely detection and response of security incidents. 24/7 monitoring provided by a SOC helps an organization to defend against intrusions regardless of source, time of day, or attack type.

- Penetration testing
- Vulnerability assessment
- Network Audit
Vulnerability assessment is a term that includes defining, identifying, classifying, and prioritizing vulnerabilities specifically for network infrastructures. The whole evaluation process is done using vulnerability scanners
Vulnerability assessment is based on various factors i.e. type of business or industry.
This is done by following five steps.
- Identify the hazards.
- Determine what or who could be harmed.
- Evaluate the risks and develop control measures.
- Record the findings.
- Review and update the risk assessment regularly
Penetration Testing or pen testing is a planned attack on the network infrastructure to check how many vulnerabilities can be exploited to penetrate your system. Simply, all the penetration done by the pen-testers is seen to strengthen the internal system from outside attacks.
Pen-testing includes all the attempts that are done to breach the system to uncover all the vulnerabilities & attacks probability.
Five Stages of Penetration Testing
- Planning and reconnaissance: Test goals are defined and intelligence is gathered.
- Scanning: Scanning Tools are used to understand how a target responds to intrusions.
- Gaining Access: Web application attacks are staged to uncover a target’s vulnerabilities.
- Maintaining access: APT’s are imitated to see if a vulnerability can be used to maintain access.
- Analysis: Results are used to configure new settings before new tests are initialized.
Network Audit is known to be mapping your network resources i.e. Hardware & Software both. This process is one of the complex parts of Network management where all network elements are identified.
Network auditing is the process of mapping and inventorying your network in terms of hardware and software. It’s a fairly complex task that involves manually identifying network elements. In some cases, network auditing tools can provide automation support to identify the devices and services connected to the network. In addition to hardware and software, auditing should include security documentation such as user accounts and groups as well as permissions.
