Based off MITRE’s worksheet, this modified version assigns a score to your organization. Once your complete the calculator, evaluate your score and see our recommendations below.

Evaluating Your Score

1 to 3 points

The organization can probably make do with an ad-hoc, decentralized approach to a SOC using members of the in-house IT staff, but an outsourced SOC is still recommended.

4 to 14 points

The organization probably doesn’t warrant its own SOC, but a SOC is necessary, so an outsourced SOC is recommended.

15+ points

An outsourced SOC may still work, but the organization should strongly consider its own SOC, especially if points are much higher than 15.
