As supply chain and living-off-the-land attacks continue to strike organizations across the industry spectrum, SOC analysts are challenged with pinpointing malicious acts and piecing together disparate data to get a full picture of what is happening in their environments. Join us in this webinar with SANS Analyst Jake Williams and Symantec Endpoint Product Management Director Adam Licata for a case study illustrating the difficult processes many SOC analysts face in performing threat analysis when they are lacking the right data and threat intelligence to dig deeper and follow a trail of suspicious activity.

This will be a chance to:

  • See some of the threat analysis challenges you face via a live case study
  • Understand more about how processes requiring data acquisition and analysis may slow detection time
  • Find out how Symantecs new Threat Intelligence API provides a better way
