Detecting malicious activity more quickly and more accurately is key to reducing business impact of cybersecurity threats. This requires both visibility into alerts and logs from servers, PCs and network devices but also analytic tools to enable cybersecurity analysts to prioritize response and mitigation actions. A common success factor of those organizations who are not in the news for yet another breach is investment in the people, processes and technology to decrease time to detect and time to mitigate without negative impact to business operations.

During this SANS What Works webcast, Ryan Niemes, Lead Security Analyst at rapidly growing biotech firm, Illumina, will provide details of his deployment of Splunk's SIEM to enable continuous monitoring of advanced targeted attacks, supporting faster and more accurate detection, reduced impact and demonstrating benefits to increased integrity and availability of critical business processes.

Join SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and Ryan to hear details on the selection, deployment and experience using Splunk Enterprise Security and Splunk Cloud. The webcast will contain a discussion of lessons learned and best practices as well as detail the metrics used to demonstrate the value of Splunk.
