You’ve heard of Boss of the SOC (BOTS) and now it’s time to test your skills against the top Splunk security experts from cities across North America! Even if you are new to Splunk or security, this event has something to offer. BOTS is the best place to see where you stand, understand how you can improve, and learn how to investigate real-world incidents in a safe, fun, and competitive environment.

And who knows, you might even have what it takes to become the next Boss of the SOC!

Already attended a BOTS event? This is a brand-new question set based off Boss of the SOC version 3 dataset. Even if you attended .conf18 or a BOTS event since then, this will be a new experience!
