Different security operations centre (SOC) teams have different approaches to doing security. Some are based on network security, while others only do vulnerability management. Most SOC teams will consider themselves as doing defensive activities and would consider themselves as a blue team. What if there is a way to approach this type of work from a hacker mindset? Join this short talk on how a blue teamer got influenced by her teammates who are pen testers and gain some insights on how a hacker mindset has helped her become a better SOC analyst. There will be time after the talk for listeners to ask questions about work in the SOC.
