Tactical Detection & Data Analytics Summit

Tactical Detection & Data Analytics Summit

  • Two days of in-depth Summit talks covering practical techniques for improving an organization's detection capability
  • Closely aligned, immersive information security courses, including SEC455: SIEM Design and Implementation and SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics
  • Networking opportunities, Cyber Defense NetWars, and SIEM NetWars

Summit: December 4-5 | Training: December 6-11 | Co-Chairs: Justin Henderson & John Hubbard | CPE Credits: 16

The Tactical Detection & Data Analytics Summit will bring together leading security practitioners to present real-world case studies that demonstrate how to utilize high-value log sources, monitoring tools, and sound analysis techniques as a robust detection capability.

Security teams continue to miss intrusions that can be easily detected with their own data and current set of tools. As an example, many organizations deploy a SIEM, but they struggle to effectively parse, enrich, and filter their data to generate actionable intelligence and detect the bad guys. Join us at the Summit to learn first-hand from those who are generating practical solutions to common security challenges.

The Summit will explore the following topics:

  • Detection techniques and tools
  • Log collection
  • Log enrichment (pre-ingestion or post-ingestion)
  • Log analysis with emphasis on adversary detection
  • Scripts that provide cool new ways of analyzing data
  • Security in Continuous Monitoring
  • Data Processing, Normalization, and Analysis
  • Applying security expertise to data analytics
  • False positive reduction
    • Via scripts
    • Via security expertise and processes
    • Via data analytics
  • Machine learning and statistical data analysis
