A Life Story: From Clean Infrastructure to Chinese APT in 1 Month

Imagine that you've been tasked with checking that everything is working like clockwork, as it always has done, on your company's systems. You are 100% sure everything is alright; however, the assessment shows the opposite.  Or worse scenario - your client/partner calls you and tells you that there is some malicious activity coming from your side. Still, think that everything is clear from our end? However, the Chinese APT group might prove you wrong.

Scaling Security Operations: The Answer to the Challenge of Threat Inflation

Expressions such as "the growing threat landscape" are commonplace in cybersecurity conversations. In fact, organizations are living in a World where "threat inflation" is the reality and there is no reason to believe it will change anytime soon.
How can we handle this without making our cybersecurity teams become the highest number in our budget? The future of cybersecurity is hedged on a single word: Scale. 

We will explore how organizations can achieve cybersecurity operations by: 
• Adopting cloud-based solutions to scale technology to cloud-level volumes of data 
• Leveraging advanced analytics to improve the threat detection funnel so it can ingest more data while still generating a small number of leads to be investigated 
• Applying automation where it makes sense, accelerating and improving response consistency. Finally, the challenge of producing threat detection content will be reviewed, and how organizations can reduce the pressure for skills and resources.

Modernising Security Operations

When applied to modern security operations, legacy SIEMs restrict analysts by security use case, narrow their scope of work exclusively to security data, and prevent holistic data collection with restrictive licensing costs. Security teams need their SIEM to facilitate fast queries and investigative actions, automate detection and prevention, and streamline workflows — all with integrated cloud environments in mind. Can your current SIEM adapt to your upcoming business needs? Join this session to find out how modern security solutions can bolster your existing security operations strategies.

Demystifying NDR - Evidence not Alerts - Demystifying NDR – Don’t trust, Verify with Evidence

What matters most in a criminal trial? Evidence. Everything depends on the quality and depth of facts deployed to build a case for innocence or guilt. Without compelling evidence, no jury can draw accurate conclusions. Here at Corelight, we are in a position to see that the most sophisticated cyber defense teams in the world have shifted their strategies towards the collection and analysis of high-quality evidence to both disrupt advanced attacks and accelerate SOC operations: quite literally, treating evidence as a first-class part of their strategy.  During our session, we will introduce the power of Enterprise Zeek in combination with advanced analytics built on top of layers of detection including machine learning, statistical analysis, heuristics, threat intelligence, and much more.
