Traditional security operations center (SOC) practices are manual and plagued with lengthy alert triage and inefficient incident response processes that are not optimal for security analyst productivity in the AWS Cloud. These practices do not translate well to modern cloud methodologies that are built for scale and with automation.

In this webcast, SANS analyst Dave Shackleford and Nam Le AWS from Marketplace will explore real-world examples and offer practical guidance to equip you with the needed visibility and efficiencies to scale. You will learn how to limit alert fatigue while enhancing SOC productivity through automating actionable insights and removing repetitive manual tasks.

Attendees at this webcast will learn how to:

* Structure a cloud SOC to scale through technology

* Integrate threat intelligence into security workflows

* Utilize automated triaging and action playbooks

* Leverage AWS services and seller solutions in AWS Marketplace to help achieve these goals
