THWACKcamp 2017 - Protecting the Business: Creating a Security Maturity Model with SIEM

Product Manager

The THWACKcamp 2017 session, "Protecting the Business: Creating a Security Maturity Model with SIEM" is a must-see for anyone who’s curious about how event-based security managers actually work. SolarWinds Product Manager Jamie Hynds will join me to present a hands-on, end-to-end, how-to on configuring and using SolarWinds Log & Event Manager. The session will include configuring file integrity monitoring, understating the effects of normalization, and creating event correlation rules. We'll also do a live demonstration of USB Defender’s insertion, copy activity detection, and USB blocking, Active Directory® user, group, and group-policy configuration for account monitoring, lock-outs for suspicious activity, and detecting security log tampering.

Even if you’re not using LEM or a SIEM tool, this will be a valuable lesson on Active Directory threat considerations that will reveal real-world examples of attack techniques.

THWACKcamp is the premier virtual IT learning event connecting skilled IT professionals with industry experts and SolarWinds technical staff. Every year, thousands of attendees interact with each other on topics like network and systems monitoring. This year, THWACKcamp further expands its reach to consider emerging IT challenges like automation, hybrid IT, cloud-native APM, DevOps, security, and more. For 2017, we’re also including MSP operators for the first time.

THWACKcamp is 100% free and travel-free, and we'll be online with tips and tricks on how to your use SolarWinds products better, as well as best practices and expert recommendations on how to make IT more effective regardless of whose products you use. THWACKcamp comes to you so it’s easy for everyone on your team to attend. With over 16 hours of training, educational content, and collaboration, you won’t want to miss this!

I'm considering LEM to replace GFI Eventsmanager on a couple networks... I wonder how it handles STIG'd environment?

Honestly, the schedule should be spread across enough time slots so a single person could easily attend every session.

I have been working at Atmosera 15 years starting as a NOC Tech and working up to being a Systems Engineer and the InfoSec Team Lead. At Atmosera we provide hybrid-cloud and datacenter services to companies of all sizes around the world so my days are never dull. My primary responsibility is building out and managing our monitoring, management and security infrastructure that supports thousands of systems (and clients) including Linux, Windows, Storage, Network and Facilities systems; this management infrastructure is built largely on SolarWinds technology. I also work with our InfoSec team providing coaching and guidance in their daily activities. When not at work I am typically spending time with my wife and daughter, playing video games with my friends or poking around in Thwack. If you are curious how I ended up in this industry you can check out my Geek Memories video I did with SolarWinds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0iVDw_497I
