The term SOCk-Puppets ( originations )

The word  "Socpuppets"  was a term coined in the early 2008,  to describe the Terremark SOC personnel. It was funny term  & never meant to be derogatory or to belittling .

I guess you can say; "

That everybody in the SOC at that time, was on a string and was operated like a puppet ".

Sock Puppet

I personally like the term "Socketteers" over SOCpuppets. For example, most SOC operators are operating in a vast arena & with many unknowns. This concept is comparative to how our earlier pioneers lived and operated.

So a SOCket-teer would be  pioneer in the world of  Security Operation. So for you SOC operations persons, I dedicate this SOC Puppet blog to you.
