Topic: Security Operation Center – Lessons Learned

A “starting from scratch” presentation and the lessons learned as you navigate from defining business requirements, existing equipment, topology, culture, interdependencies, risk analysis, gap analysis, risk registers, an ISMS framework and staffing.

This presentation is not in binary, or a fairy tale, it’s a holistic approach by focusing on two fundamental essentials; your devices and the applications running in your environment.
