Why Choose 7Safe for your SOC requirements?

7Safe will help you to identify what you need, what will work in your organisation’s culture and the way to get there. Building a SOC requires collaboration and communication among multiple functions (people), a wide variety of technical security products (technology) and varying processes and procedures (processes), whatever governance frameworks – e.g. ISO 27001, NIST SP 800, ITIL, COBIT, etc – you use.  

Operating best practice in your SOC based on our people, process and technology consultancy, technical services and training results in lower financial losses from compliance failures. It also reduces the risk of negative publicity that can harm an organisation. Best practices also make it relatively easy for an organisation’s cyber security to sail through regulatory audits.

More and more organisations are establishing SOCs that sit at the heart of their cyber response capability. Using security scenarios and adapting best practices can help ensure your SOC investment is focused on the threats that really matter to your business, supports your regulation and compliance efforts and - critically - reduces the financial and reputational impact of a cyber incident.

We help your organisation to focus its SOC on the threats that really matter to your business, recognise the really serious incidents when they occur, and make sure that you respond quickly and appropriately. This means making sure that you have the right threat intelligence, are gathering the right event data, applying the right analytics, prioritising the right incidents and responding in the right way. Most importantly, your SOC team needs to have the right mind-set and understanding of the business context.

We can help you to:

  • Identify the core functions required in your SOC and choose the best deployment options;
  • Establish your own in-house SOC, using the right technology solutions (such as SIEM), based on an in-depth understanding of the specific needs of your business and your risk appetite;
  • Assess third-party information security management services before procuring a SOC or another MSSP services from a third party provider;
  • Train your SOC team to ensure you optimise your triage and incident response processes, and get the most out of the latest supporting technologies.

By combining world-class technical expertise with in-depth business, regulatory and industry knowledge, our experts will help you to prioritise and determine where your SOC should focus to make the biggest difference to your business risk and deliver the best return.

Which type of organisations need a SOC? 


The National Cyber Security Centre advises that you might need a SOC if you…

  • are running an online service for the public
  • host a number of sensitive databases which are accessed by staff on your premises, by remote staff, or by customers or partners
  • have several different office locations and a unified security function delivers cost savings
  • share large quantities of sensitive data with other organisations
  • require a single point of visibility for all your threats. 

The NCSC defines a cyber security incident as:

  • A breach of a system’s security policy in order to affect its integrity or availability.
  • The unauthorised access or attempted access to a system.
