About this event

Start with Good Data

The volume of cybersecurity data is continuing to grow at an ever-accelerating pace although more is not always better. The need for quality data has never been more important for cybersecurity threat prevention and detection. The integration of ArcSight and the Elastic Stack allows cybersecurity analysts to easily collect and visualize event data from log sources across the network. The presentation will discuss the ArcSight Data Platform’s capabilities for capturing logs from a vast array of sources, managing and enriching the data and forwarding the events to the Elastic Stack in a unified and structured format to create a more secure networked environment.

Gregory Hedge is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Castle Ventures Corporation, a cybersecurity integrator and managed security service provider. The Castle Ventures analytical cybersecurity team uses event log collection and correlation solutions such as ArcSight to detect threats, compliance issues and anomalous behavior to protect customers throughout the United States. Gregory has been working with information security for over 20 years. His favorite hobby is collecting event logs.

Elastic Fast Forward: What’s New

It’s been a while since the last meetup and the engineers at Elastic have been delivering a lot of new functionality. We’d like to spend some time discussing a number of new features as well as some demonstrations. For those new to the Elastic Stack we’ll give a brief overview and then dive right in on what’s new in 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 (and maybe a bit more)._

AJ Pahl is a Principal Solutions Architect at Elastic. AJ has over 20 years of IT experience in large scale distributed systems management and application development for both Financial Services and Automotive manufacturing verticals.
