    OmniSOC Work-flow

    OmniSOC is a new shared cybersecurity operations center for higher education. Founded by Northwestern University, Purdue University, Rutgers University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Indiana University, this pioneering initiative strives to help higher education institutions reduce the time from first awareness of a cybersecurity threat anywhere to mitigation everywhere for members.

    A team dedicated to security operations can focus on real time threats as they happen. A dedicated security operations team can also focus on developing the skills needed to identify, respond and re-mediate in a efficient manner.
