Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) technologies are top of mind with many organizations and service providers today. The ability to automatically respond to cybersecurity incidents is becoming a must-have in order to keep up with today's threats. But do you truly understand this technology and what it takes to implement effective automated response?

Join John Pescatore, Director at the SANS Institute and Kevin Prince, Founder and CEO at StratoZen as they discuss how you can implement effective automation in your cyber defenses. This educational webcast will cover the critical foundational components you should have before implementing SOAR technologies. It will also cover important concepts such as automation controls and the difference between automating actions versus automating decisions.
