As you are reading this document, more than 100 successful hacking has occurred in the world per minute. With all the news stories about hackers, botnets, and breaches involving personal information, it's easy for the security message to sound over-used and tired. It's easy for people to say, "It won't happen here."

Currently, Security Operation Centre (SOC) Analyst role is being only used in Security Operation Centers (SOC) that are monitoring financial institutions. Instead, we can upscale every IT person in an organization by equipping them with the skillset of a SOC Analyst so that they have the ability to review logs and identify attacks that are happening in their own organization and enable their organization to respond to them effectively.
