Overview

Creating a high fidelity alert requires knowing how alert engines function and what their capabilities are. Let's face it, many built-in alerts need tuned or disabled due to lack of context or a massive amount of false positives generated. This webcast focuses on how alert engines operate, what rule types are available, and how to create alerts that are high fidelity and easy to implement.
