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

OmniSOC was founded by five Big Ten Academic Alliance member schools to reduce the time from first detection of a security threat to campus mitigation.  Today, OmniSOC’s members include higher education institutions of all sizes, both public and private. OmniSOC regional R&E network members include I-Light and SoX, and  OmniSOC also provides cybersecurity to the nation’s greatest research through its ResearchSOC service, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Security Operations Center. 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.
