The role of a Security Operation Centre (SOC) Analyst can be a wide and varied one. The job covers everything from responding to immediate Security requests and incidents to management of threats and vulnerabilities as they develop. Network and vulnerability assessments may need to be carried out together with hands on technical support. The most effective SOC Analysts will have likely learnt key skills on Security Operations Centre focused Courses. Experience using various Security information and event management tools such as ArcSight or Splunk will likely be required too.
A SOC Analyst will usually need to be fully up to date with a variety of different SIM ( Security Information Management) and SEM ( Security Event Management) tools in order to carry out their responsibilities effectively.
Often, many of the analysts skills will have been learnt on the job. However, due to the fast rate of change in the Security requirements of many organisations, new skills will often need to be learnt as part of an on-going training programme. Individuals working as SOC Analysts will need to keep their skill-set as up to date as possible by attending both refresher courses and training in related new technology, tools, techniques and procedures whenever necessary. Specific SOC Analyst courses are available from some training providers.
Security Operations Centre (SOC) training courses will help you to understand about responding Security incidents and vulnerabilities. In this courses, you will learn how to Improve your operational Security capability, leverage the Security operations centre (SOC) analyst and specialist training techniques used in vulnerability management and Security information event management (SIEM) platforms.

Let’s face it, your organization does not handle severe cyber-attacks on a daily basis. SOC operators and incident response teams can spend months responding to simple cyber incidents, without facing even a single severe attack. To keep your teams updated and alert, the most productive activity you can undertake is to invest in more cyber Security training.
The best way to train your team is in a dedicated cyber Security training and simulation center. Although it should be a part of your SOC training regimen, your access to such training may be limited. Cyber Security training centers require a budget and taking your team offsite. In the interim, provide them with training opportunities they can perform right from their desk in the SOC.
SOC is a team primarily composed of Security analysts organized to detect, analyze, respond to, report on, and prevent cyber Security incidents.
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
