Hiring and Retaining SOC Talent — and Where Automation Fits In

Presented by

Kayla Williams, CISO, Devo

About this talk

Our recent SOC Performance Report™ found that SOC leaders continue to face challenges retaining SOC analysts amidst talent shortages and high turnover. To be specific, the survey found that 71% of security professionals are likely to quit due to a combination of persistent issues working in the SOC. So, how can SOC leaders improve working conditions in the SOC, recruit and hire top-tier talent, and prevent talent churn? Kayla Williams, CISO of Devo, moderated this panel discussion with SOC managers from H&R Block, FanDuel, and Accenture. These professionals shared how they grow and retain their teams, how they’ve leveraged automation to improve workloads, and explained how you can do the same. Topics covered include: Highlights from Devo’s most recent SOC Performance Report, including which factors contribute most to SOC burnout, mental health issues, long hiring cycles, and SOC inefficiencies. Insights on modern-day cyber recruiting, including how to retire outdated barriers of entry into cyber career paths. How to leverage automation to improve workloads and, ultimately, overall job satisfaction so you can retain your top analysts. A concluding Q + A session.
