The Splunk team is excited for a full week of activities at Black Hat (August 3-8) and DEF CON (August 8-11) in Las Vegas. Lovingly referred to as “Security Summer Camp,” we’ll be joining over 20,000 security professionals to learn more about the latest in security research, development, exploit and attack techniques.
We know that your security teams are under an increasing amount of pressure to reduce organizational risk and to investigate and respond to threats as quickly as possible. Staying ahead of advanced adversaries is increasingly challenging when the digitization of our lives opens up a new slew of attack vectors. And when over 60% of breaches take months or longer to discover, the slightest inefficiency in your organization’s workflow, technologies and processes can mean a risk to your reputation and bottom line.
Don’t let your SOC be stuck in the past—we invite you to visit us at Booth No. 1022 in the Black Hat Business Hall during expo hours to learn how you can modernize your security operations with the Splunk Security Operations Suite. The Splunk Security Operations Suite includes market-leading SIEM, UEBA and SOAR solutions—all augmented with actionable use case content, a highly scalable data platform and the largest security partner ecosystem—you can turn your data into real-time insights and actions.
Make sure to visit our booth and catch a demo or theater presentation showcasing a variety of use cases and topics, including:
- Security and Risk Monitoring
- Incident Investigation, Response and Forensics
- Insider and Advanced Threat Detection
- Fraud Analytics and Detection
- Compliance and Data Privacy
- SOC Automation and Orchestration
At Black Hat 2018, we debuted the first issue of our graphic novel series called, “Through the Looking Glass Table,” where we followed a real-world scenario with not-so-real Frothly Brewing Co., quirky security analyst for hire Alice Bluebird and how they used Splunk to defend against a breach. Curious to find out what happens in the next installment? Well, wait no longer—we’re happy to announce the second issue will be available at our Splunk booth! Didn’t read the first issue? Not to worry, download your copy here!
In addition, we have an exciting lineup of presentations and activities planned during the week. Here’s just a sample of what’s on the agenda:
