50 Security Dealer & Integrator / November 2018 Alarms & Monitoring The SOC of Tomorrow How AI, augmented reality and other bleeding edge technologies will impact security monitoring By Dan Gundry Historically, the goal of the security operations center (SOC) has been to provide organizations and their security teams with a common operating picture to better enable responsiveness to alarms and emergency events. As such, the task of security integrators in building out SOCs has been to tie as many relevant physical security systems – video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, etc. – into these centers to create as comprehensive a view as possible for control room operators and dispatchers. But in an evolving technology landscape that generates what seems to be an ever-increasing amount of data, at what point do we reach information overload in the SOC? Whether we like it or not, we now live in a world of “Big Data” – and providing control room operators with the right tools to better sift through this growing data sea is going to be the primary challenge of systems integrators tasked with building out the SOCs of the future. ©Istock
