About this event

Hi folks, it's been a while since we gathered in Wellington. Join us for a meetup on 4th July!

�Our Cyber Security Solutions Architect, James Spiteri, is in town and will be speaking about the exciting new release of Elastic Stack 7.2 [1]. He focus in on the debut of Elastic SIEM. The initial launch of Elastic SIEM [2] introduces a new set of data integrations for security use cases, and a new dedicated app in Kibana that lets security practitioners investigate and triage common host and network security workflows in a more streamlined way.
