In the fight against cybercrime, the battleground for many organizations is the security operations center. The SOC is ground zero for figuring out if an organization is under attack – and how to respond swiftly and efficiently if malicious behavior is detected.

“It’s a never-ending trend of increasing complexity, increasing vulnerability, [and increasing] expectations of security teams to be able to defend organizations in a world that is growing more and more diverse, with employees doing more and more different kinds of things, all of which represents opportunity for hackers,” says Rob Lefferts, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft 365 Security and Compliance.
