## An Introduction to Elastic SIEM - Elvis Saravia
In this talk, we will introduce Elastic SIEM which introduces a new security analytics solution which forms part of the available applications in Kibana. Elastic SIEM, which is offered for free as part of the default distribution, offers security practitioners features such as new data integrations, intuitive ways to triage events, network-related security event analysis, interactive and composable timeline event viewers for collaborative threat hunting. Other related topics in this talk will include Elastic Common Schema (ECS) for data normalisation and how SIEM integrates with other components of the Elastic Stack such as Machine Learning.
## The hidden gotchas of AWS Elasticsearch offering - Dmytro Yurchenko
In this talk we will share our experience of working with AWS flavor of managed Elasticsearch service as well as the pitfalls we have discovered while building our search notifications system around it. As Homegate is building its applications using AWS platform, the choice of AWS Elasticsearch service seemed only natural. However all the challenges we have faced in application development and operational maintenance keep feeding our motivation to look for an alternative Elasticsearch service provider.
We hope to see you all there!
