We’ve long known that there are far too many threats and security alerts, for overstretched analysts to respond to. But as enterprises have piled on new layers of security, especially during the COVID era, the sheer number of disparate tools is making the problem worse – not better. Recent estimates are that large enterprises average over 100 discreet security tools, many of which don’t play nicely together.
Today’s security challenges are less about detection, than connecting the dots. This presentation will cover strategies to empower your security team through orchestration, automation, and collaboration tools, to connect systems across platforms, and connect the right people across silos to take intelligence-driven action.
Learning Objectives:

  • How to connect people and systems across security silos
  • The need to orchestrate disparate security tools
  • Strategies for effective automation with humans in the loop
  • Integrating collaboration and threat intel sharing across organizations
