August 2020 Chapter Meeting - Web

Posted by Administrator Friday, August 7, 2020

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals for a virtual meeting on August 27th, 2020.

Topic:
“SIEMple Steps to Detect, Investigate Advanced Unknown Threats, and Respond"

Topic Summary:
With limited budgets, resources, and various tools, many security teams struggle to detect even basic threats and attacks. Statistics show nearly half of all breach victims have zero visibility they've been attacked, with the average breach to detect time around 196 days, or until they have been notified by an outside party. During this session and product demonstration, we'll share common challenges security teams experience and provide you with how to detect, investigate advanced unknown threats, and quickly respond using cyber kill chain.

The topics of this presentation include:

  • Uncover potential threats in your environment with real-time insight into indicators of compromise (IOS) and malicious host
  • Point and click search for efficient threat hunting
  • Incorporating automation and orchestration into your SOC to make your cybersecurity and incident response team more productive
  • How to collect and secure data storage without volume-based pricing
  • Enhance your cloud security with extended controls

Speaker:  Jesse Langdon
Jesse Langdon is a Sales Engineer at Exabeam. Jesse is an experienced (22 + years) logical security and engineer professional with a demonstrated history of working in the information technology and services industry.
