Micro Focus Universe in The Hague has a lot to offer the world of Security Operations. Industry experts, analysts, and software engineers will get together and discuss all things relevant to SecOps. Machine learning, artificial intelligence, SIEMs, UEBA, SOAR, compliance, and security infrastructure will all be discussed at the upcoming event, starting March 17th. 

Boosting efficiency with SOAR

Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) is essential for those in the business of finding, stopping, and remediating security incidents. It is the set of processes and programs that allow near-instantaneous reaction to threats and breaches.

SOAR.jpgThere are a lot of moving parts in most businesses, especially large enterprise businesses. Navigating and orchestrating who needs to do what, and figuring out what actions need to be executed during a data breach can take up valuable time. If you’re concerned about incident management, SOAR solutions are a good way to prepare for these events, and more importantly, to make your security operation’s reaction time as quick as possible. Learn how SOAR can drive SecOps efficiency by attending our Drive SecOps Efficiency Using SOAR workshop at Micro Focus Universe on 17 March.

Next-Gen SOC

Micro Focus is focused on equipping the Next-Gen SOC. A next-gen SOC is a security operations center that utilizes real-time threat detection, advanced machine-learning analytics, and a mature security orchestration, automation, and response solution. With the right platform, your organization can develop their SOC to leverage artificial intelligence and layered analytics to protect their digital enterprise. To learn how to vitalize your SOC with advanced threat detection and layered analytics, be sure to attend our Next-Gen SOC session on 18 March.

Data Science in the SOC

Machine learning has been around for a while now, but is it really necessary in the SOC? To put it simply, yes, it is absolutely necessary. Security analysts have a thankless job of defending their company’s most valuable assets, at all times. They aren’t congratulated for all the threats they stop, but instead are reprimanded for the few that they don’t. As a result, they have to use every tool at their disposal to protect and monitor their environments, and they have to become very proficient at hunting threats.  Most people can identify when something is really out-of-whack, given the right visualization.

That’s where machine learning is invaluable for analysts trying to understand what’s going on. For one thing, computers are very good at measuring and calculating differences that are almost imperceptible to humans. By using mathematical calculations to learn what’s historically and contextually normal, machine learning is able to find those hidden threats.
