OmniSOC reduces the time from first detection of a security threat to campus mitigation.

OmniSOC was founded by Indiana University, Northwestern University, Purdue University, Rutgers University, and the University of Nebraska—all members of the Big Ten Academic Alliance—to reduce the time from first detection of a security threat to campus mitigation.  OmniSOC also supports the ResearchSOC, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Security Operations Center, providing cybersecurity for the nation’s greatest research. Major NSF clients include the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, GAGE/UNAVCO, and the Gemini Observatory.

OmniSOC operates as part of Indiana University in conjunction with the formidable experiences and capabilities of the Global Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC). It also makes use of threat intelligence insights from the Research and Education Networking Information Sharing and Analysis Center (REN-ISAC).

OmniSOC is a 24 x 7 x 365 cybersecurity operations center for higher education and research, shared among multiple universities. But how, exactly, does it work?

Watch to learn how members share their cybersecurity data with OmniSOC, how OmniSOC analyzes it for potential threats, and how OmniSOC then notifies campuses when incidents require further action.
