SecOps Journey: From Use Cases Toward Automation

Tuesday, May 14 | 4:00PM–5:00PM CT | St. Gallen, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Tufts has been on a journey to transform security operations that focuses on detection of and response to threats and on having the ability to conduct necessary research for a variety of situations. This talk will cover our lessons learned so far on the journey of mapping use cases to log sources, codifying operational processes, assessing the potential for automation and the SIEM tools and ecosystem to make this possible. We will also discuss transforming our team into our own internal SecDevOps model.

Outcomes: Learn an approach to develop value-added security operations through use cases * Explore rarely discussed concepts for a hybrid SIEM ecosystem and aligning use cases to necessary data sources * Identify key concepts for staffing, skills, internal SecDevOps, and potential sources of efficiency improvements using automation
