The Next Generation of SOCs – Peter Liebert – PSW #628
Peter Liebert is the CEO at Liebert Security. After working in and with SOCs for the majority of my career, as well as building one from the ground up for the State of California, there are some lessons learned that can be shared with the wider community. The first is how to leverage automation and devsecops methodologies in your SOC and the second is how to break out of the traditional Tier 1-3 model.
Peter Liebert is the CEO of the security consulting company Liebert Security and is acting Commander for the California State Guard Cyber Operations forces. Previously Peter served as the California State CISO where he was the primary state government authority charged with ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of state systems and applications, and ensuring the protection of state information assets serving the nearly 30 million California residents. It was in this role that he won SC Media’s CSO of the year and Statescoop’s Up and Comer Award. Prior to his role in the State, he served in the U.S. Military as both an officer and a civilian working in organizations including United States Cyber Command and the Office of the Secretary of Defense Cyber Policy division. He holds multiple degrees and numerous industry certifications.
