About this event

Welcome to our first NYC Elastic User Group meetup of 2024! We're kicking off the year at our Elastic NYC office with a presentation by Jessica Garson (Sr. Developer Advocate at Elastic) and Jagdish Gautham Krishna Kumar. Doors open at 5:00 pm, talks start at 5:30 pm, followed by light bites, drinks & networking.

We are still looking for lightning talks: 5 to 10-minute presentations. 

Have you ever considered presenting but think 30 or 45 minutes is too long to start with? This is a great opportunity to try it out. Interested? Please send us an email at meetups@elastic.co.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending. Registration closes on Wednesday, February 7th, so we can provide a list of names to building security.

Talk Abstracts:

Elasticsearch Query Language — ES|QL (Jessica Garson - Sr. Developer Advocate at Elastic)

Elasticsearch and Kibana added a brand new query language: ES|QL — coming with a new endpoint (_query) and a simpler syntax. It lets you refine your results one step at a time and adds new features like data enrichment and processing right in your query. And you can use it across the Elastic Stack — from the Elasticsearch API to Discover and Alerting in Kibana. But the biggest change is behind the scenes: Using a new compute engine that was built with performance in mind.

Join us for a quick overview and a look at syntax and internals.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Analysis - Jagdish Gautham Krishna Kumar

In the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape, organizations face constant threats that necessitate close monitoring and analysis. This talk will focus on Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) analysis using the powerful tool Kibana. Attendees will learn about the fundamental principles of SIEM and how Kibana can be used to enable effective security monitoring.

The presentation will cover important topics such as data collection, correlation, and visualization in Kibana, as well as practical insights into how to use its features for threat detection and incident response. Attendees will learn how to set up dashboards, create custom visualizations, and use Kibana's query capabilities to detect anomalies and potential security incidents.

Additional talk abstracts are coming soon! As a reminder, if you are interested in presenting at a meetup, reach out to meetups@elastic.co
