Presentation Title
Maturing your security team: haste makes waste

We are often told by vendors that we need the latest and greatest technology to better protect our organizations - but do we really? Are our security teams / CSIRTs / SOCs actually prepared to use that new technology to its best effect? We find the answer is often: “no”. Many organizations gloss over the basics, and try to integrate the latest cutting edge technology and techniques before they have the skills and processes in place to handle them. 

This talk proposes methods that you can use to work out when you are really ready for the Next Big Thing in your security team, and provides you with a roadmap to help guide you on your journey.

We will address:

* Where does your team sit on the maturity spectrum?
* What does a good improvement roadmap include?
* How do you know your organization is ready to use:
* Large scale data feeds
* Threat Intel
* Big Data
* Machine learning
* What basics do you need to get right, and in what order?
