Cybersecurity & ATSEP: Incident management in Security Operations Centers

Security Operations Center (SOCs) are IT units within organizations such as Air Traffic Control or Airport Units that focus on cybersecurity issues. The IT security team at these centers monitors, identifies and analyzes network infrastructure for cyberthreats. Their job is to conduct risk assessment, mitigate risks by taking proactive measures and respond to threats. This team must also communicate with the broader organization's personnel on steps to maintain network safety.
