SOC Maturity Assessment

Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Operations

SOC Maturity Assessment

The maturity model for security operations evaluates the existing security capabilities of an organization with the aim of diminishing its cyber risk and the costs associated with incidents. By decreasing the time taken to identify and counter threats, the organization enhances its cyber resilience and develops a strategy for gradual improvement. Each level of the model progresses from the preceding one, incorporating advanced technological tools and process enhancements that fortify the security operation’s effectiveness.

Benefits Of SOC Maturity Assessment

Embracing the outcome-based approach brings a significant advantage by aligning with the fundamental mission of a SOC. This mission revolves around swiftly restoring a secure operational state following incidents and thwarting security events from escalating into breaches. This approach offers a more relevant framework of objectives and advancements for the SOC, enabling resource allocation towards addressing common threats initially and then delving into more intricate scenarios. By automating Threat Detection and Incident Response (TDIR) processes for levels 1 and 2, an organization can efficiently manage a substantial portion of expected threats. This strategic allocation of manual resources to the more intricate Level 3 and other challenging cases can address potential risks more effectively. The shift from generating a multitude of alerts to embracing an end-to-end outcome-focused TDIR workflow not only enhances SOC effectiveness but also drives continuous improvement through insights gained from each incident. Consequently, this maturity model not only boosts SOC efficiency but also enhances staff satisfaction, reducing burnout. The next step, discussed in our upcoming blog, will delve into real-world use cases, showcasing the practical implementation of this advantageous approach.

SOC maturity model based on outcome



Established preventive measures such as firewalls and antivirus solutions are in place, accompanied by a reactive defense strategy. The environment exhibits instances of technology and functional segregation. Formal incident detection and response processes are lacking or in their infancy. Security policies are either undefined or rudimentary. The organization’s defenses are ill-equipped to counter unfamiliar and advanced threats employing evasive “living-off-the-land” attack methodologies.


Basic application of attack surface reduction practices is observed, encompassing aspects like monitoring the health of security controls, conducting vulnerability assessments, managing patches, and identifying unprotected assets. Logging and event retention predominantly stem from compliance and audit prerequisites. A structured incident detection and response framework is absent. The organization’s vulnerability to obscure and sophisticated threats utilizing “living-off-the-land” attack methods remains unaddressed. Scarcity of technologies capable of consistently and repetitively identifying suspicious activities is evident.



Endpoint detection and response (EDR) as well as network detection and response (NDR) solutions are implemented but with limited integration, operating in isolated silos. Robust and advanced security policies are effectively deployed, leveraging pre-defined configuration templates to prevent human errors. Log data and security event centralization is practiced at a minimal level, primarily focusing on servers and critical assets, particularly in the event of a data breach. The absence of adequate human resources and streamlined processes hampers efficient alert assessment and prioritization. While the organization exhibits increased resilience against cyber threats, it remains susceptible to cybercriminals using unknown, sophisticated attack methods that exploit blind spots, notably unprotected endpoints.


The organization has implemented a fundamental yet structured protocol for ongoing surveillance, utilizing behavioral analytics to identify anomalies and effectively counter threats present within the environment, leveraging advanced EDR/NDR security solutions. Comprehensive log data and security event centralization practices are established. IoC-based threat intelligence is seamlessly integrated into analytics and workflows. The deployment of security analytics facilitates the detection of known threat TTPs (tactics, techniques, and procedures). Basic operational metrics for mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) are in place.


Comprehensive centralization of log data and events, ensuring ample retention for in-depth investigation of advanced persistence threats. Robust cross-organizational case management, collaboration, and automation capabilities are in place. Sector-specific IOC- and TTP-oriented threat intelligence seamlessly integrated into security controls and workflows. Advanced security analytics leveraging AI/ML-based behavioral analysis, guided by seasoned SOC experts, enable anomaly detection. Well-established and documented investigation and response protocols, inclusive of playbooks, insights garnered, and continual refinement of SOC procedures and tools. A 24/7 in-house team or SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) is operational, encompassing SOC analysts, responders, and hunters. Advanced operational metrics for mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR), along with historical trend analysis, are effectively implemented.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the primary goal of a SOC Maturity Assessment?
The primary goal of a SOC Maturity Assessment is to evaluate and improve an organization’s ability to detect, respond to, and mitigate cybersecurity threats and incidents effectively. It aims to assess the maturity of various components within the SOC to enhance its overall cybersecurity posture.

What technical aspects are evaluated during a SOC Maturity Assessment?
A comprehensive SOC Maturity Assessment evaluates technical aspects such as SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) configuration and tuning, log management, incident response automation, threat intelligence integration, network monitoring capabilities, and endpoint detection and response (EDR) effectiveness.
What role does compliance play in SOC maturity assessments?
Compliance with industry-specific regulations and standards (e.g., GDPR, HIPAA, or NIST) is an essential component of SOC maturity. The assessment examines how well the SOC aligns with these requirements and its ability to demonstrate compliance through monitoring and reporting.
How does the assessment typically categorize SOC maturity levels?
SOC maturity levels are often categorized into stages, such as Initial, Defined, Managed, Measured, and Optimized. Each stage represents a higher level of maturity in terms of processes, tools, and capabilities.
How does the assessment address threat hunting and proactive security measures?
A mature SOC goes beyond reactive incident response. The assessment includes evaluating an organization’s ability to proactively hunt for threats, leveraging threat intelligence to identify potential threats before they become incidents, and validating findings through in-depth analysis.
What role does threat intelligence play in SOC maturity, and how is it assessed?
Threat intelligence is crucial for a mature SOC. The assessment examines how well the SOC integrates threat intelligence feeds, performs threat intelligence analysis, and uses this information to enhance detection, response, and threat hunting capabilities.
