Defining the Security Operations Center of 2020

VIDEO: Samir Kapuria, senior vice president and GM, Symantec Cyber Security Services, gives a preview of his RSA keynote on how security will evolve.

SAN FRANCISCO—Among the many topics of discussion at this year's RSA Conference here is how the security business is changing in the face of evolving threats. In a keynote presentation set for 2:30 p.m. PT today, Mike Brown, president and CEO of Symantec, is delivering a keynote address on the security operations center (SOC) of 2020, along with Samir Kapuria, senior vice president and general manager, Symantec Cyber Security Services.

In a sneak peek preview with eWEEK, Kapuria sat down for a video interview to discuss where his company sees security operations headed in the next four years and how Symantec is positioning itself for the shift.

"The key for the SOC of 2020 is knowing how to maximize the output from a dearth of talent out there," Kapuria said. "Our priority focus is looking at what can be automated, what can be put into big data analytics and what can be predicted so our people resources will be focused on interpreting, rather than collecting."
