March 24th 2022, Chapter Meeting - In Person

Posted by NB Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Please join ISSA-KC Chapter members and other security professionals at Hereford House, Leawood.

This Month's Topic:  
Big 3 security data problems everyone has, and how to solve them.  
Regardless of organization size, security teams have the same Big 3 data problems:
*  Volume - too much data to analyze,
*  Lack of context - constantly looking up IPs or user names from your events to understand what those mean,
*  Normalization - all data sets are in different formats, or worse, need to be analyzed in different tools because of the formats.
With so many security tools on the market, it can be difficult to form a plan on how to attack this problem. In this session we will explore how common tools attempt to address the Big 3, where they succeed and where they fall short. We will likely mention security tools that you use now or, at least, categories of tools that you have. More importantly, we will propose a practical approach to start solving the Big 3. You will walk away with an actionable plan that should make your daily life as security practitioners easier.
