�️Presentation 1: What's new in Elastic Stack 7.2

The Elastic Stack version 7.2 is out! Headlined by the new SIEM Application, 7.2 consists of tons of new great features worth checking out including the release of our .NET APM Agent, Self-Managed App Search, and new and improved modules for Kubernetes monitoring. Not only will we cover the new features in 7.2, but everything that has come out since our last meetup earlier this year.

�Speaker: My name is Matt and I am a Solutions Architect at Elastic based in Chicago, IL. I have been at Elastic for a little over a year and a half. Before my time here I spent some time at AWS where I found my passion for technology. When I am not diving into the ELK stack I enjoy watching everything Boston sports and my Cincinnati Bearcats.

�️Presentation 2: The Cyber Data Pyramid: Getting to the Top of the Pyramid through Automation

In this session we will review the process of digesting large amounts of cyber data, and the needs and challenges of classifying unstructured and dynamic data. We will also introduce automation methods that identify and prioritize real threats over “noise”. We will look at the manual processes that analysts need to go through today in order to reach the top of the data pyramid and present how empow’s i-SIEM automates a large portion of this work.

The session will include a demo showing how i-SIEM actually works, using real data sets and empow’s abstract playbook models. We will include an introduction of empow’s new open-source contribution to the Elastic community.

�Speaker: Antony Farrow, Senior Director Solutions Architecture, empow. Antony has been with empow since 2015, and brings with him over 20 years of experience in engineering and sales support. He began his career at Nortel Networks EMEA, and went on to fill key positions at startups Crossbeam and Plexxi, where he was instrumental in increasing sales and customer success.
