2019 Dallas Symposium
Building a Modern Day SOC

#IANSDallas #IANSEvents

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 | 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Dallas/Plano Marriott at Legacy Town Center, 7121 Bishop Rd, Plano, TX

Security Operations Centers remain rooted in the same tech, procedures and mindsets that existed before the cloud. With companies doing an ever-increasing amount of business in the cloud, and with more of their resources residing there, the old-school SOC is quickly losing its ability to fulfill its mission.

These SOCs must adapt to life in the cloud and security teams need direction on how to get it done. They must be able to differentiate between an old-world SOC and one in the cloud and make the transition without dropping balls in either world.

This 5-hour symposium, led by IANS Faculty Member George Gerchow, will help practitioners address those issues and return to their organizations with a set of solutions that include:

  • A list of changes necessary to bring the SOC to the cloud, and the order tasks must be carried out,
  • A clear idea of the new skills SOC operators will need for life in the cloud,
  • A training roadmap that will help them acquire those skills, and
  • An understanding of the detection and response tools that are needed.


This symposium is designed with CISOs, security architects and SecOps leaders in mind, but security practitioners and risk managers of all types are welcome.

This event is for IANS clients and invited guests — there is no vendor sponsorship or presence.
