The SOC manages information security events and identifies and analyzes them correctly. The SOC monitors applications for the purpose of identifying a possible cyber attack and determines whether it is a real, malicious threat.

[2] A CSIRT is a concrete organizational entity (consisting of one or more people) that is responsible for providing a portion of event management capability for a particular organization. When a CSIRT is found in an institution, it is often the key to coordinating and supporting the event response. By definition, a CSIRT is involved in the fight against minimum incidents

[Killcrece 2002]. It is also obliged to analyze the events observed by the end users or proactive network and system monitoring and to solve the problems arising therefrom. The CSIRT carries out the following important tasks:

  • To determine the effect, scope and nature of the event,
  • To understand the technical cause of the event,
  • To identify other incidents or potential threats arising from events,
  • Investigate and recommend solutions and workarounds,
  • To support the implementation of the coordination and support strategy with other departments in the institution,
  • To disseminate information about current risks, threats, strategies against attack through warnings, recommendations, Web pages and other technical publications,
  • Coordinate and collaborate with external parties such as suppliers, ISSs, other security groups. Today, in many institutions, SOC and CSIRT are undertaking the same task.
