Victoria Baines has spent the last 15 years analysing and investigating cybercrime and online safety issues. Until 2017, Baines was Facebook’s Trust and Safety Manager for EMEA. Her work focused on operational support to law enforcement and strategic engagement with policy makers on criminal activity online. Before joining Facebook, Baines led the strategy team at Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), where she was responsible for the EU’s cyberthreat analysis. She designed and developed the iOCTA, Europe’s flagship threat assessment on cybercrime and authored 2020, scenarios for the future of cybercrime that were the basis for a successful short film series of the same name. Prior to this, Baines was Principal Analyst at the UK Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).
I joined BAE Systems Applied Intelligence in 2018, where I got involved in the corporate incubator programme and to take on the lead role of SOC.OS, which at the time, was the most mature venture within the incubator funnel.
SOC.OS is a simple idea: a SaaS tool designed to help stretched in-house IT security teams manage an ever-growing volume of security alerts. It works by continuously analysing, triaging, and prioritising alerts, escalating the most important incidents to the IT security team for further review.
At the time I joined the venture, it was an early stage idea with only nascent technology behind it. I helped build out the initial team, develop the MVP and acquire the first early adopting customers.
We’ve since spun-out SOC.OS as a standalone business with the help of seed VC funding in June 2020.
