Splunk Security Forum

January 29, 2019 - Grand Hyatt Washington, DC

Security teams are hard at work on the front lines: identifying, analyzing, and mitigating the threats facing your organization. Despite their best efforts, however, security incident backlogs continue to grow larger every day. The reality is that there simply aren’t enough skilled professionals to analyze the growing volume of incidents that most organizations face daily. Worst of all, incident response is too slow.

Join us on Tuesday, January 29, for a half-day informative session on how Splunk’s Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) platform, Phantom, is helping organizations overcome these resource constraints and supercharge their SOC environments. Splunk Phantom effectively integrates your resources, tools and processes so your security teams can work smarter, respond faster and strengthen your defenses.

You will learn how with Phantom you can:

  • automate tasks, orchestrate workflows, and support a broad range of SOC functions
  • work smarter by automating repetitive tasks, effectively force multiplying your team’s efforts and allowing them to focus their attention on mission-critical decisions
  • respond faster and reduce dwell times with automated detection, investigation, and response
  • automate and strengthen your CDM, compliance, and overall security defense

Who should attend:
  • SOC Analysts
  • SOC Managers
  • Security and Information Assurance Managers
