ISMG Virtual Roundtable Discussion: Smarter SOC Management Using XDR

ISMG hosts Chris Calvert, Co-Founder & CTO of Respond Software for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges making SOC management more effective.

Discussion topics will include:

What are the greatest challenges of managing a SOC today?
How do I develop a “situation” based response to managing security analysts?
What role does XDR play in the SOC of the future?

What is XDR and How Will it Impact the SOC?

XDR is the hottest new category in cybersecurity.

eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions offer streamlined security incident detection through unified security sensor integrations that enable the Security Operations teams to respond to threats more effectively and efficiently and promise to eliminate much of the costly and painful security engineering that mature SIEM and SOAR solutions require. Cybersecurity professionals are no strangers to vendor saturation, so how do security leaders find the best XDR solution for their enterprise?

In this live webcast, Marilyn Littell, VP of Software Solutions, and Jeff Smith, VP of Digital Transformation Technologies at IIS, discuss the key considerations for evaluating the operational and business costs/benefits of implementing an XDR solution.

Joined by guest, Dan Lamorena, CMO of Respond Software, this interactive discussion will focus on answering these three questions:

1. What are the key benefits of an XDR, and do we need them?
2. What is beneath the hood in an XDR, and will it effectively find real events in our environment?
3. What are the considerations we should have when building out a shortlist of vendors?

Connect the Dots of Your Security Evidence

Security analysts are swimming in a sea of alerts. They end up staring screens and multiple consoles instead of the real cyber detective work of finding attackers. Current SOC tools only fill in some of the blanks and require constant tuning and maintenance. There is a better way.

Leading SOC builder and co-founder of Respond Software, Chris Calvert has helped many organizations change their SOC from a reactive posture to one that is proactive in finding the bad guys. Attend this live webinar to hear from Chris about the new product category of XDR (Extended Detection and Response) and how organizations are deploying XDRs to detect and respond to attacks faster at a fraction of the cost.

Reset Modern SecOps for Stability, Resilience, and Growth

Modern security operations is set for a transformation. Join this webinar to learn:

• How to employ a human-first approach in the SOC, driving human resilience to empower security analysts to work smarter, not harder
• Why artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are not silver bullets for the modern SOC
• How to assess the right tools to level-up security monitoring
• Questions you need to ask today to transform your cybersecurity investments for tomorrow
•Detect threats using “integrated reasoning” from multiple security sensors
•Reduce or eliminate the need to chase false positives
•Scope multiple events into a manageable number of incidents that SOC teams can remediate

What is a Next Generation MSSP?

Organizations must consider many alternatives when deciding on an MSSP, including:
-What are the typical cybersecurity challenges that small to medium businesses face and how are they being addressed by MSSPs?
-How can these organizations afford to hire an MSSP within the constraints of a tight budget?
-What attributes do organizations need to consider when evaluating an MSSP and what kinds of benefits should an organization expect from them?
-What does a next-gen MSSP look like and why is that important?

By automating the monitoring & triage of EDR events with Robotic Decision Automation (RDA), security teams can focus on their response actions and other areas that reduce business risk.
So, in this real training event, we will share research into how to deal with this problem and introduce a unique kind of technology designed to take the grunt work out of alert analysis.
