Quality not Quantity: Continuous Monitoring's Deadliest Events

  • Eric Conrad
  • Monday, January 23rd, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Most Security Operations Centers are built for compliance, not security. One well-known retail firm suffered the theft of over a million credit cards. 60,000 true positive events were reported to their SOC during that breach... and missed: lost in the noise of millions. If you are bragging about how many events your SOC "handles" each day: you are doing it wrong.

During this talk we will show you how to focus on quality instead of quantity, and provide an actionable list of the deadliest events that occur during virtually every successful breach.
