Workshop 3: Discover the Secrets of the SOC & How to Build a Threat Hunting Team

05 Jun 2019, 14:00 - 16:00

Security Workshop

In the first half of this interactive workshop, we’ll talk about what goes into making a SOC work effectively. As well as providing the core monitoring and incident response function, SOCs can also provide many other services, such ensuring that security basics are in place using vulnerability management and security awareness, through to proactive, advanced threat hunting. Plus, to ensure effective spread of resource and scalability, SOCs should have continual focus on automation.

Secondly, if you’re not actively looking for the bad guys hiding in your network, you will never find them. However, building a successful threat hunting team requires more than tools and data. In this session, discover the secrets behind the award winning Cisco Talos team and how you can improve threat detection.
