Security Operation Center (SOC) for the Indian Government

Worked as tier-4 SOC manager for one of the largest Indian Government cyber SOC. I helped set up the new SOC and heavily contributed to its day-to-day activities by building, testing, and implementing new use cases per requirements. I also identified various indicators of compromises (IOC) and detected indicators of attack (IOA) using multiple security information and event management (SIEM) technologies.

Regarding Microsoft Azure, I created alerts and handled Azure resource logs by configuring Azure Sentinel and the Azure log analytics workspace. Also, I investigated and troubleshoot issues related to Azure security monitoring while managing Sentinel subscriptions for multiple customers.

Finally, I performed SOC architectural reviews, deployed playbooks for automated incident responses, handled SOC's evaluation processes, gap analysis, and audits, and reviewed enhancement reports, dashboards, rules, and notifications.
