What is a Global Security Operations Center?

Global Security Operations Centers (GSOC) use automated technology to provide integrated intelligence and analytics to monitor security, improve incident response, and mitigate risks. This central function enables enterprise resilience by providing real-time situational awareness that protects corporate assets and safeguards personnel.

The Difference Between Global Security Operations Centers and Security Operations Centers

For organizations with large geographical footprints, multiple Security Operations Centers (SOC) are regularly integrated or consolidated into a Regional Security Operations Center (RSOC) or Global Security Operations Center (GSOC), further improving intelligence sharing and overall situational awareness.

These traditionally take the form of large control rooms with significant visualization capabilities designed to accommodate stakeholders who may need to play a role in an unfolding critical event.

Explore our white paper, 7 Principals of Leading Global Security Operations Centers to learn more about response techniques and how they help mitigate operational risk.

What Makes a Good Security Operations Center?

An effective security operations center mitigates threats by connecting people, processes, data, and systems to drive value and collaboration across your organization.

Modern GSOC

A GSOC uses automated tools as an integral part of daily operations to:

  • Provide proactive, coordinated risk monitoring while maintaining the ability to respond and mitigate the impact of threats.
  • Function as a business partner, supporting the same mission and objectives it is charged with protecting.
  • Provide real-time situational awareness: identifying and helping staff manage emerging threats with actionable insights and clear communication during critical events.
  • Create informed, prepared, and empowered staff, allowing them to act confidently and decisively in times of peril.

Does a Global Security Operations Center Eliminate Silos?

Prevent Communication Breakdown

An effective GSOC can help simplify interactions between teams and individuals to improve the response to critical events. The intent is to minimize the risk of missing key signals or communications.

By centralizing operations into a single physical space, GSOCs can help eliminate silos  and improve communication. However, physical centralization is often not enough to provide security across your organization. To be successful in eliminating silos and improving security across your organization, all systems and their data must be centralized.

Unified Smart Security

A Single Consolidated Operational Dashboard

Due to the sheer number of different screens and interfaces that need active monitoring, information overload and alert fatigue are real threats in modern GSOCs.

Using a platform layer ensures that everyone is operating from the same picture, providing the right information to those who need it when they need it most.

What About Virtual Global Security Operations Centers?

Virtual GSOCs have existed for many years, although the pandemic accelerated their adoption by removing dozens of different software applications, multiple monitors, and displays from the equation. Virtual GSOC operators can work from remote locations and home offices while remaining in step with what is going on across the organization.

Virtual GSOCs continue to grow in popularity and help organizations increase their resilience by eliminating another single point of failure.
