Most of the GDPR's requirements talk about not only getting proper consent from individuals, but also notifying these individuals on how their data is being handled as well as what rights they have over this collected data. However, there are also specific requirements concerning the security operations center (SOC). Apart from ensuring lawful and transparent data collection, businesses also need to establish technical measures to safeguard data from attacks and threats. This is the primary objective of the SOC.
