Free webinar explains how you can respond to intrusions faster

Do your security analysts have limited time and resources? Are they bogged down searching through logs instead of actively hunting for potential intrusions on your network?

In a free webinar, “Active Cyber Hunting Revealed: How vSOC Identifies Threats in Your Environment,” security experts from GuidePoint Security and CrowdStrike will show you how you can more efficiently correlate data and begin your own cyber hunt for potential threats to your environment.

This free, educational webinar begins at  2 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016. Register here now.

During the webinar, participants will learn how CrowdStrike Falcon can be integrated into a Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) for endpoint monitoring. By using Falcon Connect API to ingest host data into the vSOC monitoring platform, analysts can correlate endpoint data against SIEM security logs. The combination makes it easier to discover new and emerging threats.

Participants will learn how to do ad-hoc searches and queries, quickly conduct comprehensive investigations, identify insider threat activity, and create dashboards and reports.

Following the presentation, there will be a 15-minute question and answer session. Even if your schedule is full and you can’t tune-in live, go ahead and register now and we’ll send you a recording you can watch later.

Presenters will be Stephen Jones, GuidePoint Security’s director of managed services, and Kris Merritt, senior director of hunting operations for CrowdStrike.

Stephen has more than 10 years of experience in information technology and cybersecurity within the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. His primary focus has been Information Assurance (IA) and Computer Network Defense (CND).

Kris leads CrowdStrike’s internal and external hunting programs. He has more than 10 years of experience in cybersecurity and network defense, mainly in leadership roles of security operations, incident response, digital forensics, signature development, indicator management, and tactical tool development within large enterprise networks.

“I look forward to presenting alongside Stephen on how CrowdStrike Falcon Host’s continuous endpoint visibility immediately enables SOCs and hunters to detect, analyze, and respond to intrusions at a time scale once only dreamed about,” Kris said. “Operating at this time scale has provided unique insights into malicious behavior where a human actor or even malware is involved.”

“CrowdStrike uses these insights, along with rich visibility on the endpoint, to rapidly refine its approach to the threat, Kris explained. “I’m excited about our partnership with a company like GuidePoint who is eager to use the best technology to provide the best service to their customers.”
