What is CSOC?
CSOC stands for Cyber Security Operations Center and it is also known as other names. It has an essential role in protecting the business from unofficial events happening in the network and it contains the services such as monitoring & recording, detection, analysis, reaction and elimination of any issue or risk in the network. Usually, there is a professional team behind these services which are skilled expertise to detect and analyze any issue related to cybersecurity vulnerabilities and resolve that issue by preventing the security of the network. It is a 24/7/365 service.
Problems with CSOC
Cost to comply
The first problem in building up the Cyber Security Operations Center is a huge budget and it will even cost more for hiring employees to operate CSOC on a daily basis. The companies have to comply with cost by spending at least $500,000 for setting up CSOC which is not necessary these days because these companies can hire third-party vendors to maintain and secure their network and save the sensitive data such as confidential documents or reports.
The cost to service CSOC
The payment is the biggest problem in running CSOC because usually, a company has to hire 4 employees on average, and these employees should be qualified to maintain and control the security systems. More experience means more salary like a company has to hire 2 hacker professionals at $80,000 each which is equivalent to $160,000 then at least one defensive sector engineer at $80,000 and one team leader at $80,000 to manage and control everything in the center. The minimum cost to service is around $320,000 which is quite high for small business companies.
