Book: Cybersecurity Arm Wrestling

Cybersecurity Arm Wrestling - Winning the perpetual fight against crime by building a modern Security Operations Center (SOC)

My latest adventure is writing a book on building and operating a world class Security Operations Center (SOC). This book is scheduled to be published by end of 2020 and will be available through in print as well as free PDF download.

Book Research

Other than my 20 years of experience in information security, I have been talking to a number of information security professionals as part of my research. The objective is to benefit from practical experience of a many people who have actually planned, designed, and built SOC and incorporate their experiences in the book.
