How to Build and Retain a Highly Qualified SOC Team


Cybersecurity work requires long, demanding hours and being on call 24/7.  

Companies who want to build a dedicated team and retain them over the long run have to find ways to make those demands worth it. A competitive salary is a given, but that’s not enough to make a person stay. Nurturing employee education with regular training and mentorships, fostering a culture of teamwork, and creating paths for growth can improve employee retainment.  

In this first episode of our new mini-series #1SEAT, Joshua Copeland, Security Operation Center Director for AT&T, shares his tips for hiring the right candidates, making training a priority, and taking some of the pressure off the job.
