.CONF & SPLUNKLIVE! .CONF & SPLUNKLIVE!

#splunkconf17 Preview: Analytics, Automation, Cloud, Deception, GDPR, Hunting, SIEM are Dominant Themes in Security

It's that special time of the year again for the Security Markets Team at Splunk as we're less than two weeks away from .conf2017, Splunk’s annual user conference! This year, the security track has over 45 learning sessions and numerous hands-on activities.

I'm looking forward to four glorious days in Washington, D.C., to interact with our passionate users, CISOs, CIOs and business leaders, and learn about the innovative ways in which Splunk is solving customers’ security needs.

This year, we have more than 30 customer-led sessions where you can learn how our customers use Splunk Enterprise Security, Splunk User Behavior Analytics and Splunk Enterprise to transform their security practices and solve their security challenges. You'll be able to hear from customers such as athenaHealth, Aetna, CAA, Aflac, Bechtel, Carnegie Mellon University, Duke University, Fannie Mae, FINRA, Kaiser Permanente, Sony, Capital Group, JP Morgan Chase, Optus, Priceline.com, Red Hat, Republic Services, SAIC, Sherwin-Williams, Thales, TransAlta and more on how they use Splunk to solve their security needs.

The security track has sessions for all levels from beginnerintermediate and advanced levels. There will also be sessions for all personas from administrator, analyst, hunter, SOC manager, head of security and CISO.

Take Our Boss of the SOC Challenge

Boss of the SOC (BOTS) is a capture the flaq-esque competition, played in teams of up to four. Registered .conf2017 attendees are invited to join the Splunk Security Team for the BOTS competition! During the BOTS competition, you'll show off your l337 skillz and compete against your peers for l00t and respect.

Note that space at BOTS 2017 is limited so register ASAP. Splunk will review all registrations and notify teams that are selected to participate via email.

In-Depth Hands-On Sessions

If you are up for detailed hands-on learning, we have three deep-dive scenarios:

  • Boss of the SOC (BOTS) with Splunk Enterprise Security
  • Anyone Can Build an App
  • Splunking the Endpoint Part III: Macs Don't Get Malware, Right?

I anticipate these sessions will be fully packed, so register early to secure a spot now.
