Security Operations Center (SOC) & A Network Operations Center (NOC)

A Network Operations Center (NOC) and a Security Operations Center (SOC) are two important components of a modern enterprise network infrastructure. They both play a critical role in ensuring that network services are available and secure.

Network Operations Center (NOC)Monitoring and managing the operational status of an organization's network infrastructure

A Network Operations Center (NOC) is responsible for monitoring and managing the operational status of an organization’s network infrastructure. The NOC team ensures that network services are available and running optimally, and responds to issues that arise such as network outages, performance problems, and security incidents. NOCs monitor the entire network infrastructure, including routers, switches, servers, firewalls, and other network devices. They use various tools and technologies such as network monitoring software, alerts, and dashboards to track the performance and availability of the network.

On the other hand, a Security Operations Center (SOC) is responsible for monitoring and responding to security threats and incidents within an organization’s network infrastructure. The SOC team’s primary objective is to protect the organization’s critical assets and data from cyber-attacks. The SOC team accomplishes this by monitoring the network for signs of malicious activity, such as network intrusions, malware infections, and data exfiltration. They also investigate security incidents, contain the damage, and take steps to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. SOC teams use various security tools and technologies such as intrusion detection systems, security information and event management (SIEM) software, and threat intelligence feeds to detect, analyze, and respond to security threats.

The main differences between NOCs and SOCs are their primary objectives and areas of focus. While NOCs focus on ensuring the availability and performance of network services, SOCs focus on protecting the organization’s assets and data from cyber threats. NOCs deal with issues such as network outages, while SOCs deal with security incidents such as data breaches. Another difference is that NOCs primarily focus on operational tasks such as network monitoring, while SOCs focus on security-related tasks such as threat detection and incident response.

Core Responsibilities

  • Maintaining security monitoring tools
    The team must maintain and update tools regularly. Without the correct and most up-to-date tools, they can’t properly secure systems and networks. Team members should maintain the tools used in every part of the security process.

  • Investigate suspicious activities
    The SOC team should investigate suspicious and malicious activity within the networks and systems. Generally, your SIEM or analytics software will issue alerts which the team then analyzes and examines, triages, and discovers the extent of the threat.

Our Team Members


Defines the security operations of the organization. They communicate with management about security issues and oversee compliance tasks.

The CISO has the final say on policies, strategies, and procedures relating to the organization’s cybersecurity. They also have a central role in compliance and risk management, and implement policies to meet specific security demands.

SOC Manager

Manages the security operations team and reports to the CISO. They supervise the security team, provide technical guidance, and manage financial activities. The SOC manager oversees the activity of the SOC team, including hiring, training, and assessing staff.

Additional responsibilities include creating processes, assessing incident reports, and developing and implementing crisis communication plans.

They write compliance reports, support the audit process, measure SOC performance metrics, and report on security operations to business leaders.

Security Engineer / Architect

Maintains and suggests monitoring and analysis tools. They create a security architecture and work with developers to ensure that this architecture is part of the development cycle.

A security engineer may be a software or hardware specialist who pays particular attention to security aspects when designing information systems.

They develop tools and solutions that allow organizations to prevent and respond effectively to attacks. They document procedures, requirements, and protocols.

Security Analyst

The first to respond to incidents. Their response typically occurs in three stages: threat detection, threat investigation, and timely response.

Security analysts should also ensure that the correct training is in place and that staff can implement policies and procedures.

Security analysts work together with internal IT staff and business administrators to communicate information about security limitations and develop documentation.
