What is the Security Operation Center (SOC)?
Located in Purdue Research Park, the Security Operations Center (SOC) is staffed by a combination of state employees and Purdue students who monitor security incidents across the State of Indiana's computer network.
The SOC will be staffed on-site by nearly a dozen employees - at least two full-time with others to include interns from Purdue University. At startup, the SOC will operate a first shift - from about 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. In future phases, planners envision a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week operation.
Interns will have restricted access to information and resources. All employees and students will be subject to rigorous security background checks.
