The Reality of the Frontline SOC: 

  • False positives create alert fatigue for security analysts, impacting SOC effectiveness
  • Fear of missing incidents (FOMI) negatively impacts job satisfaction for security analysts and managers
  • Security analysts need advanced automation solutions and back up of experienced frontline defenders to reduce alert fatigue and increase effectiveness
