This is literally a last minute blog post about my sessions at this year’s Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit. This time I have three sessions:

Tuesday 18, 2:30PM – Debate: Changing Societal Perception of Cybersecurity: This is a very fun debate with my colleague Paul Proctor, where we discuss the need to change society’s perception of security. Paul is trying his best, but I don’t think he can win this one 🙂

Wednesday 19, 5:15PM – Creating Security Monitoring Use Cases With the MITRE ATT&CK Framework: The MITRE AT&CK framework has quickly become a popular tool for many security operations practices. This session illustrates how it can be used to address some of the most common challenges of security operations centers: How to create security monitoring use cases? How do we know if we are looking for right things? What should be the starting list of use cases on our SIEM deployment?

Thursday 20, 10:45AM – Further Evolution of Modern SOC: Automation, Delegation, Analytics: This presentation provides a structured approach to plan, establish and efficiently operate a modern SOC. Gartner clients with successful SOCs put the premium on people rather than process and technology. People and process overshadow technology as predictors for SOC success or failure. Among other things, it will cover questions such as: Do I need a SOC and can I afford it? Where can I rely on automation and where do I need to outsource or delegate? Can SOAR tools really automate my SOC?

This is one of the most fun weeks of the year for us Gartner analysts. For you attending the event and the sessions above, please let me know if you like them, what could the different and how we can improve.
