Future Events

Quick and efficient management of ongoing incidents are paramount factors to consider when designing a SOC. To this end, the SOCCRATES platform provides with a flexible approach based on customizable workflows and the integration of specific security tools. This webinar will demostrate how the SOCCRATES platform manages incidents notified from the security monitoring systems deployed in an infrastructure, from incident analysis to containment and supported by the orchestrator of several different tools.


In order to ensure that the SOCCRATES platform is fit for purpose, the project will carry out three pilots to validate the platform in realistic environments. This webinar will show results and experiences from the second pilot, in which the complete SOCCRATES platform was validated in realistic (on-site) environments at Vattenfall, mnemonic and Shadowserver.
