Security operations centers ( SOC) are a place that is home to an Information Security group responsible for reviewing and monitoring the security of an organization regularly. The SOC team's objective is to recognize the threat, analyze it, and react to cybersecurity threats through a combination of technology solutions as well as a robust process.
SOC security operations centers (also known as “centro de operaciones de seguridad soc” in the Spanish language) are generally filled with security engineers and analysts and managers who manage security operations. SOC personnel work closely with the organization's security team members to make sure that security issues are resolved quickly after detection.

Security operations centers observe and analyze activity on servers, networks, and databases, as well as endpoints, websites, applications, and various other systems, looking for suspicious activity that could indicate an incident of security or compromise. The SOC is accountable to ensure that security breaches are properly recognized, investigated, and then defended, identified, and reported.
HOW A SECURITY OPERATIONS CENTER WORKS
Instead of focusing on creating a security strategy, constructing a security architecture, or taking measures to protect themselves instead, the SOC team is accountable for the continuous, operational aspect of security for enterprise information.
Security operations center personnel consist mostly of security analysts who collaborate to identify and analyze, react to, report on and prevent cybersecurity-related incidents. Other capabilities of certain SOCs could include advanced analysis of forensics, encryption, and reverse engineering malware to study security incidents.
