Security Operations Center (SOC)

A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a Center of Excellence dedicated to cyber concerns.  With QualiTest, your SOC will be capable of rapid ramp up and ready to act while cohesively thinking and working to solve security-related problems.


A Security Operations Center focuses on the detection, analysis, response, investigation, reporting and prevention of incidents and alerts that affect the security of enterprise information, specifically company private data and sensitive PPI such as customer, user, client or patient data.  Security analysts and engineers typically staff such a center, overseen by a management layer.

A SOC must be developed to match a company’s strategy towards security, complete with technical and management security experts.  Hard-to-find skill sets (cryptanalysis, network analysis, malware reverse-engineering, forensic analysis, PKI certificate managers, etc.) or geographic concerns can be easily addressed by such a team.

Different data privacy laws (such as GDPR for European data) may demand specific immediate responses; SOC’s ensure timely response and precision follow-through.  Typical SOC staff roles include Cyber Analysts, Help Desk, Cyber Security Leads, Pen Testers, and Data Scientists.  Our senior-level cybersecurity experts keep current with security threat expertise and cyber certifications, including:
