Presentation Title
Security Analytics for Data Discovery - Closing the SIEM Gap

Although SIEM has been the cornerstone of security data analysis for years, it has struggled to meet the data triage and analysis needs required for incident response and hunting. It is too slow, difficult to use, and is often inadequately tuned or maintained to be helpful for on-demand data analysis.

In this session we’ll explore new security analytics technologies – rapid search, natural language, pattern-based correlations, and unstructured data – that can extend the on-demand data analysis of the SIEM to improve threat hunting and accelerate incident response.
