How to Modernize Your SOC (Without Blowing it Up)
The problems are staring at you: A broader potential attack surface than you've ever had before; more alerts than your systems and staff can monitor, never mind act upon; and recruiting & retaining SOC analysts are harder than ever.

But knowing you need to modernize your SOC is one thing; doing it is quite another. How do you upgrade without a complete rip and replace? How do you gain not just the visibility you need across disparate environments, but context into which alerts are truly meaningful? How do you deploy automation to manage alerts and help create a baseline for normal behavior? How do you maximize the human resources you have, as well as challenge them to want to stay and grow with your organization?

Join this session, How to Modernize Your SOC (Without Blowing it Up), to get best practices on how to take a practical approach to SOC modernization.

Discussion topics will include:

  • How are you currently approach the challenges of gaining visibility and context across your diverse environments?
  • What role does automation play - and what should it play - in managing the overwhelming alerts?
  • What are successful strategies for recruiting and retaining the all-important personnel to staff your SOC?

Joined by Rick McElroy, Principal Security Strategist at event sponsor VMware, you will have the opportunity to discuss SOC modernization with a handful of senior executives in an informal, virtual setting, from which you will emerge with new strategies, solutions, and relationships you can immediately put to work.
