These (top) threats get translated to specific use cases and map to business systems - both critical and non-critical relevant data sources. The outcome of this mapping helps SOC advice IT/security/business whether the preventive control in place is effective or not. In a nutshell, business gets visibility on how SOC is able to protect business systems, which is a primary goal of SOC program by intercepting the threat early and responding to the incident in an agreed time frame.
