Do you remember what a SOC is? And what is CSIRT? How (if at all) are they different?

Imagine that you were asked to build a SOC team for a company that runs an online sales platform. They have limited resources and would like to start small, hiring people (2-3 FTE) only for the necessary functions. What services do you think this SOC should definitely cover? What services would be ‘nice to have’?
