A glance at a day in the life for a Service Delivery Manager:

  • You are delivering a customer report and the customer asks “I have a question around this alert? Can you help me understand it?” You then explain the alert to the customer, letting them know if additional information is necessary, SOC Analysts can provide additional detail.
  • During an internal call, an engineer speaks with you about your customer, explaining that we need to set expectations right regarding a SIEM situation. You then take this information and relay it to the customer via a call; pulling in an engineer if required.
  • A customer is potentially compromised and doesn’t know what to do. They call/e-mail you as a trusted advisor on how to proceed. It is up to you to determine whether it’s an ‘all hands on deck’ situation, triaging to the appropriate departments or determining it’s not a major situation.
  • While creating a customer report, you notice a log source has completely fallen off. Confirming with the customer it is supposed to be there, you triage with the appropriate departments (SOC, engineering, etc.) to get to the bottom of the situation.
  • During a report call. A customer brings up that they are not seeing the value in their service. You determine it is due to a lack of an end-point service, discussing with the customer the value of having one. The customer agrees and you triage to sales to get things moving in the right direction.
