Session 2: Essential Elements of the Next-Generation SOC
Building a world-class SOC requires more than just people, processes, and technology.

This session will explore the elements of security operations and how to utilize this as a foundation to build a SOC capable of achieving its objectives.
Presenters: Tanner Kooistra, Austin Robertson
Session 3: Intelligence-Driven Strategies: Leading Practices for Making the Most of Threat Intelligence
The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing as attacks grow more frequent, disruptive, and prevalent across sectors and parts of the world. Threat intelligence can help organizations stay ahead of recurring trends, threat shifts, and issues on the horizon by knowing how and why cyber threats are targeting entities in their sector or industry – and implementing intelligence-driven cyber strategies. However, this can be a challenge for many organizations, and this presentation will provide several best practices for making the most of threat intelligence from an enterprise perspective.
Presenter: Sierra Stanczyk
