Cyber Defense

Top 7 Reasons to Attend the SANS SIEM Summit

1. Content Inspired — No SIEM Required

SIEMs are quickly becoming a priority across industries as organizations look for improved methods and new strategies to safeguard against breaches and attacks. The SIEM and Tactical Analytics Summit was inspired by SANS new cyber detection course, SEC555. Like the course, this summit is focused on catching the bad guys by collecting and acting upon actionable intelligence.

SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics is the industry's first vendor-agnostic Security Incident and Events Management (SIEM) training course. This course is designed to modernize your defense with actionable detects to parse through billions of logs through disparate data sources by tailoring and deploying a SIEM to full Security Operations Center (SOC) integration.

2. Like Minded Professionals and Expert Speakers

Join fellow blue teamers this November for two days of in-depth presentations from leading Security Operation teams, including our keynotes, Doug Burks, CEO of Security Onion, and Carson Zimmerman, Engineering Team Lead of Microsoft's Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC).

Speakers also include security experts from Splunk, LogRhythm, Department of Energy, Shell, Time Warner, and more.

The #SIEMsummit offers networking breakfasts and refreshment breaks to connect with fellow attendees, panel lunches with ample time for questions and discussion, a vendor expo, a cyber range.

3. Actionable Detects

The first of its kind, SANS SIEM and Tactical Analytics Summit takes a deep dive into how to deliver actionable intelligence. We asked Summit Co-Chair and Course Author of the new SIEM course, Justin Henderson, what attendees can expect from the summit:

"Feel like your SIEM or logging solution is stuck in data source rotation where the only thing you do is constantly centralize data? This event takes the focus from maintaining your SIEM to implementing actionable detects. Learn what works, what doesn't work, and how you can move from a ?coffee break compliance' SIEM to a tactical SIEM focused on catching the bad guys."

Enhance your summit experience with SANS new SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics.
