How to Leverage Log Data for Effective Threat Detection

Event logs provide valuable information to troubleshoot operational errors, and investigate potential security exposures. They are literally the bread crumbs of the IT world. As a result, a commonly-used approach is to collect logs from everything connected to the network "just in case" without thinking about what data is actually useful. But, as you're likely aware, the "collect everything" approach can actually make threat detection and incident response more difficult as you wade through massive amounts of irrelevant data. Join us for this session to learn practical strategies for defining what you actually need to collect (and why) to help you improve threat detection and incident response, and satisfy compliance requirements.
