 Our Review

SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response) platforms and processes all aim to boost productivity and accuracy. For certain organizations, these security tools often promise to reduce the expense of running a Security Operations Center (SOC). These methods, when used correctly, will accomplish all of these tasks. The problem is that most companies buy software to stop doing the one thing they don’t appear to be able to do on their own: working out the sequence of activities that need to be automated and putting disparate tools’ data together. If you feel that you are one of those Cyber professionals then get yourself involved with this SANS training event. It’s also worth noting that attending events like this can really help you when you are looking for Cybersecurity job opportunities. A lot of InfoSec organizations seek skills that are attained by attending events like this.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Saturday, April 10th 2021, or created by us.

Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) tooling are intended to increase efficiency and consistency. These tools also promise to diminish the cost of operating a Security Operations Center (SOC) for most organizations. If used properly, these tools can do all of these things. The challenge is that the tools are frequently bought to avoid the one thing that most organizations don’t seem to be able to do on their own: figuring out the sequence of actions that need to be automated and bringing together the mass of data from disparate tools.

Investing in a SOAR platform is strategic and oftentimes a financially beneficial decision. SOAR systems can help define, prioritize, and standardize responses to cyber incidents. This process occurs when an organizations security team uses the platform to gain insight on an attackers tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and known indicators of compromise (IOC).

Join this SANS lead forum as we explore various SOAR topics through invited speakers while showcasing current capabilities available today. Presentations will focus on technical case-studies and thought leadership using specific examples relevant to the industry.
