Security Information Management: Advanced Techniques in Analysis and Proactive Mitigation.

Presented at ToorCon San Diego 13 (2011), Oct. 9, 2011, 6 p.m. (20 minutes)

This lecture aims to present techniques and technologies for analysis of large security related data for the purpose of reporting and visualization. Security Information Management products are available from many vendors, but their basic goal is to correlate large volumes of data that is otherwise impossible with large amounts of data in manual human time. Through this correlation conclusions and reports can paint a picture of entire scenarios and incidents within large computing environments that generate up to terabytes of security information per day. Shelton and Yamini Sharif will share their experiences and discuss applicability and relevance with the audience.
