Introduction of SOC Planning

With increase in the value of data, many countries and enterprises are starting to establish protection and management strategies to secure their information assets. In order to provide enhanced security and rapid response to security events throughout the network, building a SOC can be an essential task for your cyber security. SOC will be designed in the manner that optimally utilizes and draws out the performance of the equipment and the characteristics of heterogeneous security devices. The scope of SOC will be composed of infrastructure, information security, organizational structure, and operation.

Introduction of SOC Consulting

Infrastructure should be properly established based on the purpose and scope of SOC. In addition, environmental conditions and elements of physical environment should be considered in order to successfully establish a SOC.

  • - Interior : Video wall, A/V system, Miracle glass, Desks & Chairs for monitoring
  • - Electrical Work : UPS & AVR
  • - HVAC : Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning
  • - Fire Detection System
  • - Access Floor (Server Room)
  • - PDU (Cabinet Panel)
  • - CCTV System
  • - Access Control System (Finger Print)
  • - Load: over 500kg/㎡
  • - Height: Minimum 3.5M
  • - Waterproof, dustproof and insulation
  • - Earthquake-resistant Design
  • - Delivery Route
  • - Minimize entrance number
  • - Outer Wall: Concrete/Bricks
  • - Briefing Room
  • - Future Expansion

Information Security

The solutions related to information security will be implemented step-by-step based on the establishment plan. It can be categorized as prevention, resistance, and monitoring & analysis systems in order to comprehend the purpose of each solution.
