As if your detection and response efforts needed any more reminding, the tenuous state of geopolitics has left many security operations teams anxiously anticipating an uptick in attacks targeting Western interests.
And, by the way, that everyday stuff, including vulnerabilities, banking Trojans (hello, Emotet!) and phishing attacks, are still running rampant.
Thus the first 2022 installment of the quarterly Google Security Talks, happening March 9, could not be arriving at a better time to help you discover ways to bulk up your organization’s last lines of defense, especially critical as SOC teams are more decentralized and organizations more exposed to cloud services than ever.
For the first time, Google Security Talks (Siemplify is a part of Google now, if you missed the news) will be entirely focused on detection and response – through the modernization of your security operations – and is geared specifically for security analysts and engineers and SOC managers.
The roughly three-hour virtual program kicks off with a keynote from Siemplify Co-Founder & CEO Amos Stern and Google Cloud Product Management Director Jess Leroy, who will lay out a practical blueprint for designing a modern threat detection and response program, one which takes advantage of the speed, automation and scale of the cloud.
Following their talk, drill down into the wonders of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) technology from Siemplify, with a primer from Nimmy Reichenberg. Later, hear from Google experts on an array of topics, from what’s new in Chronicle to trends in cloud workload protection and network-based threat detection. The researchers at VirusTotal will also be on hand, drawing on their latest cybercrime findings to present a talk on threat hunting and intelligence.
The event’s penultimate session promises to be a thought-provoking one: a “fireside chat,” featuring real-life SOC practitioners and influencers, including Robert Herjavec. The show concludes with a tidy wrap-up of all that you learned about Google Cloud SecOps offerings and how to take the next step in your modernization journey.
Not a bad investment for three hours.
