Topic:
Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM)

Summary:
Effective security operations are the first line of defense when it comes to preventing cyberattacks. To accomplish this, organizations need mature and measurable programs that leverage people, process, and technology to rapidly detect and respond to sophisticated attacks. This presentation will outline a model for Security Operations maturity. Organizations can use this model as a basis to evaluate their current security operations maturity level and develop a roadmap to achieve the level that is appropriate in the light of their specific resources, budget, and risk tolerance.
