Next Chapter Meeting - May 2nd 2018
  • Topic: Advanced SOCs and MSSPs and MDRs, Oh My!
  • Sponsor (food & drink):  SHI 
  • FacilitatorShane Harsch, Senior Solutions Principal at RSA and SANS Mentor
More Info:
  • TOPIC:
    Let’s talk meat and potatoes about advancing your SOC with threat hunting, threat intelligence, incident management, and live response. We will also look at how MSSPs and MDRs can make you successful (or not), and how to think about what kind of strategy you might need in today’s hyperkinetic, dark web-laden, threat-actor-suffused, buzzword-embattled, cyber defense hot mess initiatives
    This conversation is intended to:
    • Outline the principles of an effective threat detection and prevention program that organizations must operationalize in the new security paradigm.
    • Examine security automation and the continued role of manual analysis.
    • Recommend steps to assemble security operations and mature incident response capabilities, which are prerequisites for dedicated hunting capabilities.
    • Define threat intelligence in a way that is meaningful to your organization to better enable you to filter which companies and products are effective.
    • Outline how to be more proactive instead of reactive.  How do you identify what’s normal and abnormal within your environment?  Do you have the skills to identify anomalies and unusual activities? 
    • This will be an open discussion forum and attendees are encouraged to participate throughout the presentation.
