Operations center expert Cory Mazzola

What are best practices for applying automation to make SOCs more efficient? Cory Mazzola, executive fellow at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, offers insights.

Mazzola says CISOs should ask: “What are the secondary and tertiary processes that we're doing on a regular basis that we can look to automate … and multiply what we're doing from a manpower perspective?”

In this interview with Information Security Media Group (see audio link below photo), Mazzola discusses;

  • Tips for applying automation in a SOC;
  • How digital commerce, IoT devices and cloud technologies are affecting SOC management;
  • Best practices for application integration in the SOC.

Mazzola is an executive fellow with the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and the School of Management at SDA Bocconi in Milan. He has over 20 years of experience building global cybersecurity operations centers, managing enterprise risk management programs and leading distributed cross-functional teams. Most recently, he ran cybersecurity operations for a global Fortune 500 firm, overseeing security operations center management, incident response, threat intelligence, digital forensics, e-discovery, data loss prevention, investigations, cyber analytics and engineering.
