"The challenges of managing an MSSP SOC with some wins as well"

Josh Horne
Security Analysis Manager

Are you thinking of building out an internal SOC for your company or purchasing the services of an MSSP? I will be discussing the challenges I have seen over the past two years of managing security analysts along with some "WINS". What are the current trends in hiring security analysts? How do you balance training for new hires and current employees? How do you ingest events / logs from the different systems and incorporate a workflow process? Clients are very important in an MSSP environment, so how do you keep the client happy yet still maintain a functioning workflow? One of the most rewarding "WINS", personally, is watching employees grow professionally and develop into security experts. Another few examples of "WINS" can include the threat intel lifecycle driven by clients and the ability to access large data sets to conduct security research.

Joshua Horne is a manager for the Cyber Threat Analysis Center (CTAC) at SecureWorks, a position he has held for over the past two years and a current CIS advisory board member for Gwinnett Technical College focusing on Security. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science and Associate of Arts in Management Information Systems from Thiel College. He has earned the GCIA, GCFE, Linux+, and CSA+ certifications. Prior to transitioning to Information Security, roughly four and a half years ago, he was a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment with eight deployments to the Middle East.
