This event has been tagged as follows:
Given the fact that their own ICT infrastructures are complicated (SCADA/ICS), continuously evolving (e.g., due to the implementation of emerging technologies), and there is a lack of trained cybersecurity specialists, organizations in Europe face the daunting challenge of identifying and responding to a growing array of cyber-attacks and threats. The time it takes to track and react to cyber-attacks needs to be greatly reduced in 2021 and beyond. The creation of a Security Operations Center is one of the most important ways for businesses to remain ahead of cyberattacks (SOC). The primary goal of a security operations center (SOC) is to track, evaluate, and protect an organization’s information assets on both a strategic and operational basis; so if you work with any aspect of offensive/defensive cybersecurity then you’ll likely attain a lot of benefit from attending this conference in Ireland, which like most events in 2021 will very likely also be virtual or a hybrid.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, April 13th 2021, or created by us.
Organizations in Europe face the difficult task of detecting and responding to increasing numbers of cyber-attacks and threats, given that their own ICT infrastructures are complex, constantly changing (e.g. by the introduction of new technologies) and there is a shortage of qualified cybersecurity experts. There is a great need to drastically reduce the time to detect and respond to cyber-attacks. A key means for organizations to stay ahead of the threat is through the establishment of a Security Operations Center (SOC). The primary purpose of a SOC is to monitor, assess and defend the information assets of an enterprise, both on a technical and organizational level.
The aim of this workshop is to create a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the challenges associated with SOC operations and focus on research contributions that can be applied to address these challenges. Through cooperation among H2020 European projects, the workshop intends to provide a more comprehensive overview of the promising research-based solutions that enable timely response to emerging threats and support different aspects of the security analysis and recovery process.
