Tutorial: Security Log Analysis: Real world hands-on methods and techniques to detect attacks.  

Monday July 19th @ 8am - 11am Pacific.

A half-day training to tie together various log and data sources and provide a more rounded, coherent picture of a potential security event. It will also present log analysis as a life cycle (collection, event management, analysis, response), that becomes more efficient over time. Interactive demonstrations will cover both automated and manual analysis using multiple log sources, with examples from real security incidents.
