ISSA National Capital Chapter July meeting topic:

Transforming your SOC for Big Data Analytics -- Rationale and Strategy
by Eddie Schwartz

Despite the best efforts and significant investments of security teams, various classes of threat actors continue to wreak havoc within organizations today.  The challenge for our profession is how to reduce the impact of unknown and unexpected attacks and risks when traditional security technologies, processes, and skills have proven to be inadequate.  Big data is transforming security operations centers in government agencies and the private sector.  This session will describe the rational for a movement from traditional approaches to security management to big data, and a sensible approach to people, process, and technologies.
