Proactive Threat Analysis and Correlation

  • David Hoelzer
  • Monday, February 18th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Many of our organizations are trying hard to do all of the correlation at the SIEM. While this is a great goal, creating all of the digestors, interpreting the events, and writing correlations is very time consuming! At least in my opinion, it's better to do the correlation as close to the originator of the data as possible since the originator likely best understands the context. In this talk we will look at using an awesome open-source network intelligence framework to turn threat analyses into correlations at the network level, allowing us to find a variety of threats without needing to know their "signature"!
