SANS Security Operations Center Summit and Training 2016

SANS Security Operations Center (SOC) Summit:

As we see regularly in the news, the number of successful data breaches continues to increase. Adversaries seem to have the upper hand, as many organizations fail to effectively detect and quickly respond to these breaches. Over 80% of all breach victims learn of a compromise from third-party notifications, not from internal security teams, and are often caught by surprise. As a result, executives are demanding that their security teams provide enhanced security posturing, monitoring, and detection to stop these threats.

The Opportunity:

Cybersecurity in organizations is often a silo distributed across different internal business units. The IT help-desk/operations support group, log management team, pen testing team, and forensics and incident response team are often ad-hoc or under different management, and do not always talk or work together. Many organizations do not even have an advance warning group such as a cyber threat team. To make matters worse, in many organizations, incident response plans are not routinely tested with the entire security team.

SOC Summit:

The SOC Summit brings together industry experts and peers to discuss ideas and solutions to facilitate effective security operations for any organization – from small businesses with limited IT security personnel to larger enterprises with a dedicated operations center. You’ll learn from the best in the industry, and SANS’ hands-on and participatory approach will enable you to immediately apply what you’ve learned and start implementing effective security solutions the first day you return to the office.
