Every business–no matter its size–is a bullseye for cyber criminals. Data breaches cost an average of $3.6 million globally, according to Ponemon. Many people think the best way to bolster an organization’s proactive protections is to build a security operations center (SOC) to monitor, detect, investigate, and respond to cyber threats 24/7.
