Many organizations only think of automated response or playbook workflows when discussing SOAR. But an effective SOAR capability is more than a product purchase or simply enabling a vendor's automation feature. Done correctly, a SOAR strategy provides the critical foundation for effective and efficient cyber defenses. Join Kevin Prince, Founder and CEO of StratoZen & John Pescatore of SANS, as they discuss what makes up a proper SOAR strategy and how it can underpin your entire cybersecurity program to defend against modern threats and measurably reduce business risk.Join
