Security Modernization Starts with Data and Splunk at Black Hat 2021

It’s time to take that breach vacation and soak up the latest security research, trends and technology innovations. Splunk is proud to be a sponsor of Black Hat 2021. While you may not see us in the business hall this year and there will be fewer Splunk t-shirts around Las Vegas, you can still connect with us through our speaking sessions and virtual presence.

With the alarming rise of ransomware and cyberattacks, security and IT teams are looking for new strategies and approaches to security. From our recent State of Security report, 49% of organizations say keeping up with security is harder than it was two years ago and that securing multiple clouds adds to that complexity. It’s become more apparent security is a data problem and your data holds the answers.

Discover how customers are gaining actionable insights from their data to address security challenges with Splunk’s security portfolio and our open, unparalleled ecosystem of partners.

Here’s a glimpse into our Black Hat speaking sessions and virtual presence:
