Description

A documented Framework for Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC), to develop its Strategy and Design; Setting up , Operate, Manage, Govern, Improve and Innovate SOC.

Currently there is no such framework available from any Government, Non-Government or Commercial Organization.

The Deliverable of this project will be as follows:

Main Project:

Security Operations Center (SOC) Framework

Trainings:

Security Operations Center (SOC) Analyst

Security Operations Center (SOC) Manager

Other Documents:

Security Operations Center (SOC) Assessment

Security Operations Center (SOC) Maturity Model

Licensing

The OWASP SOC Framework is free to use.

So you can copy, distribute and transmit the work, and you can adapt it, and use it commercially, but all provided that you attribute the work and if you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar to this one.

Additionally, I also encourage you to contribute back to the project. I have no monopoly on this knowledge; however, we all have pieces of this knowledge from our experience. Let's begin by putting our individual pieces together to make something great. Great things happen when people work together.

What is OWASP SOC Framework Project?

The end goal is to document a Framework for Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC), which will guide in Strategy Design, Setting up , Operate, Manage, Govern, Improve and Innovate a SOC. Currently there is no such framework available from any Government, Non-Government or Commercial Organization.

Once this is well organised, I think it would be great to publish this through the OWASP Press. Of course, it will always remain freely available, and any money collected will go directly into the project to absorb costs with any remaining funds going to the OWASP Foundation.

This document should serve as a guide to technical Architects, Designers, Implementers, Managers, Administrators, Experts, Incident Handlers, and Analysts about their roles and responsibilities in a Cyber Security Operation Center (SOC).

How can I participate in your project?

All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator.
