As threats progressively increase across hybrid cloud environments, so does the rate of detectable security incidents for your Identity and Data Security driven environments. Navigating these growing events and identifying compelling threat activities for investigation and remediation becomes more challenging in a hybrid environment. Today, organizations must shift from log collection to event analysis in order to identify the actionable intelligence required to address advanced persistent threats, access violations, and distributed multi-vector attacks. This requires advanced collection, normalization, and correlation of on premises and cloud security events to identify what risks require a reactive defensive response.

During this session you will learn the trends driving this new approach to cloud security monitoring of identity, data security and other events, and the type of automated mechanisms that can dramatically reduce the time spent on analysis and increase the productivity of your staff--all while decreasing your risk posture.
