Security orchestration and automation aren’t just the future of security operations; they’re the present. If you aren’t already using these powerful technologies in your SOC, you’ll need to implement them soon. Are you prepared?

Join experts from D3 and EMA for an exclusive webinar on how to prepare your SOC for security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) technology. The webinar will be live on October 17 at 11AM Pacific / 2PM Eastern, and participants will be able to access the webinar on-demand following the presentation. You can sign up here.

The webinar will be hosted by David Monahan, Security and Risk Management Research Director at EMA. David has deep experience on the front lines of cybersecurity, having managed security operations for Fortune 100 companies such as AT&T, as well as smaller organizations and public-sector entities. David is known for bolstering lagging organizations with his expertise in the strategic management of security, risk, and compliance programs.

David will be joined by D3’s Director of Cyber Security Practice, Stan Engelbrecht. Stan works closely with D3’s customers during the implementation and configuring of SOAR solutions, so he has a unique perspective on how organizations can prepare for the addition of orchestration and automation.

The webinar will cover the following areas:

  • Preparing for SOAR — Defining your expectations and taking inventory of your current tools and processes.
  • Prioritizing critical requirements — Determining the most important outcomes and how they will be measured.
  • Creating use cases — Mapping SOAR capabilities onto your common workflows to highlight opportunities for automation.
  • Evaluating SOAR tools — Deciding what features are most important so that you can select a platform with the right toolset.

After that, Stan will provide some essential tips that get into the details of SOAR. He’ll tell you what specific questions to ask when assessing vendors and platforms, because many SOAR solutions might look the same on the surface, but the right question can illuminate important differences.

We hope you’ll join us for the webinar and get some valuable insight about how you can implement SOAR in your security environment. Once again, the webinar is happening on October 17 at 11AM Pacific / 2PM Eastern, and you can sign up to participate here.
