In its Second Annual Study on the Economics of Security Operations Centers, the Ponemon Institute found 81% of companies considered managing a SOC to be highly complex.
The survey of 682 SOC managers, security analysts, general security practitioners, IT managers, and directors who have a SOC in their organizations also revealed:
The ROI of SOC investments is decreasing. More than half (51%) of respondents say the ROI of the SOC is getting worse, compared to 44% in 2019.
Working in the SOC is stressful: 85% of respondents report their work is painful or very painful.
Despite the challenges, 80% of organizations feel their SOC is essential or very important compared to 73% in 2019.
