Elastic Stack 6.5 Release Recap, Live Threat Hunting Demo


Dec 19, 2018, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM


About this event

Gather round to hear from our Elasticians for the last meetup of the year. Thanks to the awesome folks at WeWork Suntec for hosting us!

Come join us if you're looking to upgrade your Elastic Stack, interested in hacking and threat hunting activities, or just curious about what Elastic is and how you can use it to solve your search and data analysis problems!

Still need a reason? We'll be serving pizza and drinks ;)

*There will be a security check on Level 2 of the building. Please make sure you RSVP with your full name, and bring a photo ID in order to enter the building!*

Talk 1: Shelly Yao, Elastic Solution Architect

Shelly will be bringing us through all the amazing new features in our latest 6.5 release (landed 2 weeks ago). Come hear about cross-cluster replication of Elasticsearch data, Canvas (for presenting live Elasticsearch data), Kibana spaces (for organizing dashboards and visualizations) and more!

Talk 2: James Spiteri, Cyber Security Solution Architect

James will walk us through a live hacking scenario and hunt the threats by using some of Elastic's built in advanced capabilities.

Cybersecurity threats have become aggressively sophisticated. The data and speed required to detect targeted attacks has increased dramatically - the signature- and rule-based approaches simply don’t cut it anymore.
The need for a cybersecurity solution that maintains and utilizes data effectively, whilst providing a simple yet powerful interface for security analysts to stop malicious users in their tracks is paramount for any security operation.

In this talk, James will demonstrate the Elastic Stack’s ability to carry out threat hunting activities needed to keep pace with the threats of today and tomorrow.
