Top 5 skills needed for a SOC analyst

Building a Security Operations Center (SOC) from scratch or revamping an underperforming one is a daunting leadership challenge. Of all the tasks you have to think about, finding and hiring a set of SOC analysts with the right skill set has to be a top priority.

These people are the last line of defense; if a cyber adversary gets past your SOC analysts, there is nobody else in the organization that can find them. You can purchase and deploy all of the latest and greatest tools for your security stack, but if you don't have the right people to run them and analyze the data they generate, you are wasting your time.
