An interview with Wesley Belleman, Cyber Warfare Operator at the California Air National Guard and System Engineer at Palo Alto Networks, and his journey through Security Operations in the United Space Space Force.
In this episode, we dive into what a SOC is, how new technology changes our ability to respond to threats, and what the open problems are still open. We explore the cultural differences between civilian and military security operations and discuss various open-source projects such as Security Onion or MITRE Att&ck that can be used to build your own SOC.
So what will the future of SOC's look like? Wes echo's Anton Chuvakin predictions that SOC's will be entirely automated, likely within our lifetimes, but not soon.
