More than a year ago, Splunk attended our last in-person industry event: RSA Conference 2020. In the halls of Moscone Center, we were bumping elbows (while using all the hand sanitizer) with our customers and partners, handing out t-shirts at our booth, and checking out all the latest innovations on the show floor. About two weeks later, we were sheltering in place and working from home indefinitely. It didn’t occur to any of us that more than a year later, we would still be working remotely or that the Moscone Center would now be a COVID-19 vaccination site. We get a little misty-eyed thinking about how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go. Still, if there’s anything that the pandemic has taught us, it’s that with innovation, collaboration and communication (and a sprinkling of patience), we can achieve anything in record speed.
Yet achieving anything in record speed — such as an accelerated digital transformation — is not without its challenges, especially when it comes to security. I’m sure you all are acutely aware of how taxing it is to know where to start, what to investigate, or how to stay ahead. But fear not, the one thing at the center of solving your security challenges is data.
We understand that data is everything and your data holds the answers — you just need to be armed with the right solutions to gain actionable insights from your data. The Splunk security portfolio has industry-leading solutions built on top of the scalable Data-to-Everything Platform to help you modernize your security operations so you can stay agile and ready for evolving threats.
At this year’s RSAC Virtual Experience, we’re excited to connect with you all about the latest in security research, trends, and ways Splunk can solve your most pressing challenges. Here’s a snapshot of what we have on the agenda for the week:
- Splunk CEO Keynote: "It's Time for Data Contact Tracing"
For the first time ever, Splunk CEO Doug Merritt will be taking the RSAC main stage. On Wednesday, May 19 at 8:20AM PT, tune in as Doug highlights how to harness the power of your data to find the fingerprints and traces of threats in order to drive faster insights while maintaining data integrity. Check out the video for a sneak peek.
- "Due to Less Pollution, Secrets Stored on the Cloud Are Now Clearly Visible"
On Monday, May 17 at 1:15PM PT, learn from Splunk Security Researchers, Jose Hernandez and Rod Soto, as they walk you through analytics and mitigation strategies from one specific threat that has resulted in the transition to the cloud: leaked credentials.
- "OODA Looping in a Turbulent World"
On Monday, May 17 at 2:00PM PT, join Ryan Kovar, Distinguished Security Strategist at Splunk, as he walks you through case studies of recent events, demonstrating how you can better OODA: observe threats, orient to a better defensive posture, decide what mitigations to make, and act upon those threats today and in the future.
- "Zero Trust: Regaining Trust in a Remote Work World"
On Wednesday, May 19 at 10:05AM PT, hear from Macy Cronkrite, Principal Security Architect at Splunk, as she provides insights and guidance to effective security monitoring in the context of Zero Trust and the remote workforce.
- "How Has Your Information Security World Changed?": Roundtable Discussion
Join Ryan Kovar again on Thursday, May 20 at 11:15AM PT, where he will facilitate a birds-of-a-feather discussion on how the past year has gone for all of us as security professionals. Let’s lean on each other as supportive peers, learn from our collective successes and share information at a high “use case” level across a virtual table.
- Visit the Splunk Virtual Booth
We know it’s not the same as hobnobbing with us at our pink and orange booth, but trust us, you won’t want to miss out on what we have in store: demos, collateral, presentations on our favorite topics like Zero Trust, DevSecOps, SIEM, SOAR and more!
