AI & The Modern SOC: Winning Tomorrow’s Cyber Mission Through Advanced Capabilities

Highlights from a Government Roundtable, hosted by ATARC, in partnership with Palo Alto Networks, July 2023

Agencies and industry partners in the federal cyber mission are facing more challenges than ever. From staffing and talent shortages to an continually-expanding attack surface, securing systems while achieving the cyber mission is increasingly more complicated as AI technology enters the mainstream.

IT and security leaders must support the changing business demands of their agency while modernizing foundational technology. Given the speed and urgency of the government’s cyber mission, modern Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are being designed and deployed to address this head-on.

Advanced AI will radically change the nature of government operations, policy and security, including changing the capabilities of human teams. In a recent roundtable discussion hosted by the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) in partnership with Palo Alto Networks, federal experts discussed what it will take to win tomorrow’s cyber mission.
