SOC Tool Life-cycle
The RCSE is completely hands-on while dealing with an ongoing, operational component of enterprise information security. RCSE is also deeply focused on the security architecture, security strategy, and implementation of protective measures in the organization. These capabilities make the RCSE razor-sharp in detecting, analyzing, and responding to cyber threats.
Rocheston understands that business-specific goals vary based on organizations. Cybersecurity strategies and SOC design are developed with the organization’s business objectives in view.
The RCSE is trained to adopt the relevant SOC strategy in tune with the objectives and set up the SOC infrastructure including the breach detection solutions, firewalls, IPS/IDS, and a security information and event management (SIEM) system, as appropriate. He/she is also equipped to manage SOCs that might require updated malware reverse engineering, advanced forensic analysis, or even cryptanalysis, to manage incidents.
The RCSE is also capable of handling the data flows, telemetry, Syslog, and other information input from the SOC members and correlates the data to check for vulnerabilities and protect sensitive information, even while ensuring compliance with government and industry regulations.
The Verizon’s annual Data Breach Investigation article has reported that there is a very little gap between the attackers’ time to compromise and the enterprises’ time to detection!
The major advantage of having an RCSE is continuous security incident detection and suspicious data activity monitoring. The RCSE ensures 24×7 analysis of the servers, databases, networks, and endpoints in an organization. The RCSE along with the SOC team can defend against intrusions and breaches from anywhere and at any time.
As more and more data get churned out, SOCs become a core fixture of organizations. The role of RCSE assumes more significance for correlating the data consumed within the organization with the data received from external sources that offer a clear insight into threats and vulnerabilities.
External cyber intelligence includes live news feeds, potential alerts, signature updates, incident reports, threat briefs, and vulnerability points which the RCSE can coordinate with the SOC in handling evolving cyber threats. The RCSE must constantly input threat intelligence into the SOC monitoring tools to update the threats, and processes to distinguish between the real threats and false alerts.
In the future, effective RCSEs are indispensable for the SOCs to deploy security automation and become effective and efficient. RCSEs are crucial in blending highly-skilled security analysts with security automation, for organizations to enhance their analytics power and security measures. RCSEs are the first-line defense against data breaches and cyber-attacks. Going forward, global RCSEs would emerge to ensure the safety and security of employees and assets worldwide for organizations!
Rocheston attaches maximum importance on assessing and mitigating threats directly while continuously handling known and existing threats. This is the backdrop of training RSCEs.
With the RCSE course, students get to be cybersecurity industry leaders! This course incorporates the human analysis element in risk assessment and attack-prevention systems. This course is relentless in equipping the RCSEs with the latest threat intelligence, improved internal detection, and attack-defense mechanisms.
The chief requirement of having a SOC is simple – To enhance the overall security!
For this, apart from sophisticated technologies, SOCs need highly accurate security incident detection with nonstop monitoring and analysis. This is how important the role of the RCSE is.
For every security administration aspect, the RCSE coordinates with the SOC team to analyze systems, networks, servers, and databases and ensures timely detection of security incidents.
With newer types of cyber-attacks, skilled RCSEs are the core assets in companies to keep up with the sophistication and pace. RCSEs must keep up, in order to detect, respond, and remediate threats as quickly as possible to meet the increasing demands.
Experience in working with TCP/IP, computer networking, routing and switching; firewall and intrusion detection/prevention protocols, knowledge of Windows, UNIX, and Linux operating systems, network protocols, and packet analysis tools is essential. Knowledge of IDS/IPS, penetration, and vulnerability testing. DLP, anti-virus, and anti-malware would be added advantage.
