Dealing with Threats

March 19, 2024

Session 1: XSOAR TIM Fundamentals

This talk will cover how XSOAR TIM works, why it works the way that it does, and will cover the entire lifecycle of an IOC (Incident Of Compromise).  The presentation will go through the moment it enters the system through to the point it is exported or shared as well as explain why everything happens the way that it does.

Session 2: The role of automation in rapid breach response

Organizations with even the most robust security defenses will still encounter new, sophisticated forms of cyber attacks. This is why threat detection and response become so critical. Speed is of the essence in the event of a wide-scale and critical zero-day vulnerability. Automation can play a crucial role in short-cutting the response process to minimize the risk of a breach.

In this session, we will walk you through a zero-day vulnerability scenario and how automation can be a great partner in helping your team speed the process from discovery to remediation.

Implementing Zero Trust

Feb 22, 2022

Zero Trust is a security model designed specifically to protect the security of sensitive data and critical applications by leveraging network and user segmentation, preventing lateral movement, providing Layer 7 threat prevention, and simplifying granular user-access controls. Where traditional security models operate under the assumption that everything inside an organization’s perimeter can be trusted, the Zero Trust model recognizes that trust is a vulnerability.
