Security teams often handle a large stream of alerts, creating noise and impairing their ability to determine which incidents to prioritize. By aggregating security information from various sources and automating incident response, organizations can increase visibility into their environment and focus on the most important potential threats. In this webcast, which was previously recorded, SANS and AWS Marketplace explore how organizations can leverage solutions to create more signal and less noise for actionable responses, enhancing and accelerating security operations.

Attendees at this webcast will learn how to:

  • Use continuous monitoring to gain insight into events and behaviors that move into and through your cloud environment
  • Integrate security incident and event management (SIEM) solutions to enhance detection and investigation of potential threats
  • Leverage security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) technologies to auto-remediate events and reduce noise in your environment

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS Analyst and Senior Instructor Dave Shackleford.
