One of the huge things that I took out of the class was the concept of a maturity model and a way to assess the maturity of an organization's security operations using the free open-source SOC-CMM that was introduced. Since taking the class under the SANS umbrella in the summer of 2018 at the DFIR Summit, I have been utilizing and following the updates to the SOC-CMM ever since using it especially in an ISAC that my company belongs to. Besides the SOC-CMM, I have been using other points from the class such as the section on metrics when talking to other members companies in the ISAC and discussing ways to assess and mature their operations. This has been a stepping stone to help prepare our security operations for the upcoming DoD CMMC initiative for contractors and educate our peers within the ISAC. Please keep up the great work!

I wanted to let you know that I was able to use material I learned from that class to propose to our upper management what a formalized security team could look like in our environment and some ways we could move forward with that. We are now making progress in making that happen. Thank you for all the work you put in to that class.

You probably would not be surprised but I keep the books on my desk and every day find some minutes to list pages and read something. I replaced listening to music on my way home to audio from the course. The course as such became my new Bible and sometime I find it addictive 😁 Thanks very much again for given such a valuable information in 5 days.

...I share all of this only to make this point – never has a track been more relevant, timely, thorough, and pragmatic as I found the course to be. In my opinion, Chris (and I am quite sure an entire team of reviewers) has thought of, considered, and addressed every issue that I have encountered in my journey to standing up an internal SOC at my company.

I attended a fantastic course this month on Managing Security Operations taught by Chris Crowley . If you have anything to do with managing a SOC or your organization needs an idea of how to get to the next level...this is the course for you.

Thanks for the excellent course in San Francisco...Btw, I appreciated how you quickly comprehended and translated specific feedback to general principles, when fielding questions in the class. That is a good skill.
