Security Operations Center (SOC)

The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the facility that houses our information security team responsible for monitoring and analyzing Capitol’s security posture on an ongoing basis. The SOC team’s goal is to detect, analyze, and respond to cybersecurity incidents using a combination of technology solutions and a strong set of processes.

The SOC staff will also act as the incident response team to ensure security issues are addressed quickly upon discovery. SOC’s monitor and analyze activity on networks, servers, endpoints, databases, applications, websites, and other systems, looking for anomalous activity that could be indicative of a security incident or compromise.

The SOC is responsible for ensuring that potential security incidents are correctly identified, analyzed, defended, investigated, and reported.
