Security Operations Centres (SOCs) 

  • Establish your own in-house SOC with the help of our skilled cyber security consultants
  • Learn what you need to know about information security management systems and technology solutions such as SIEM designed to counter cyber threats and improve response times before procuring a SOC from a third party provider.
  • Identify the core functions of a SOC and choose the best deployment options.

Why Choose 7Safe?

7Safe will help you to identify what you need, what will work in your organisation’s culture and the way to get there. Building a SOC requires collaboration and communication among multiple functions (people), a wide variety of technical security products (technology) and varying processes and procedures (processes), whatever governance frameworks – e.g. ISO 27001, NIST SP 800, ITIL, COBIT, etc – you use.  

Operating best practice in your SOC based on our people, process and technology consultancy, technical services and training results in lower financial losses from compliance failures, and reduces the risk of negative publicity that can harm an organisation. Best practices also make it relatively easy for an organisation’s cyber security to sail through regulatory audits.

What does a SOC do and why should you establish one?

The key aims of a SOC are:

  • to detect and respond to threats, keeping the information held on systems and networks secure

  • to increase resilience by learning about the changing threat landscape (both malicious and non-malicious, internal and external)

  • to identify and address negligent or criminal behaviours

  • to derive business intelligence about user behaviours in order to shape and prioritise the development of technologies.

Which type of organisations need a SOC? 


The National Cyber Security Centre advises that you might need a SOC if you…

  • are running an online service for the public
  • host a number of sensitive databases which are accessed by staff on your premises, by remote staff, or by customers or partners
  • have several different office locations and a unified security function delivers cost savings
  • share large quantities of sensitive data with other organisations
  • require a single point of visibility for all your threats. 

The NCSC defines a cyber security incident as:

  • A breach of a system’s security policy in order to affect its integrity or availability.
  • The unauthorised access or attempted access to a system.
