Standing up and maintaining a SIEM solution is difficult and often involves vendor assistance to produce a functioning result. Multiple, complex appliances can leave security teams feeling they dont truly understand how to operate or customize their systems. Combine this situation with a shortage of available skills and a lack of simple documentation, and it is no wonder why SIEM deployments often fail.†

After listening to the feedback from SANS first SIEM course, SEC555, Blue Team experts John Hubbard and Justin Henderson created the new 2-day course SEC455: SIEM Design & Implementation. During this webcast, the authors and instructors will dive into the making of the course, business cases and justification for management support, and will open the floor for Q&A with the SIEM experts.
