Splunk Boss of the SOC — EMEA Virtual Edition

 In NSW, EMEA, Environment

Hopefully you’ve heard of Boss of the SOC (BOTS) and now it’s time to test your skills against the top Splunk secu­ri­ty experts across Europe, Middle East and Africa in our first ever Virtual EMEA BOTS on Wednesday 30th September.

BOTS is a blue-team, cap­ture-the-flag-esque (CTF) activ­i­ty where par­tic­i­pants use Splunk — and other tools — to answer a vari­ety of ques­tions about secu­ri­ty inci­dents that have occurred in a real­is­tic but fic­ti­tious enter­prise envi­ron­ment. It’s designed to emu­late how secu­ri­ty teams respond to real secu­ri­ty inci­dents. Imagine that you’ve just been made aware of a breach. The BOTS sce­nario chal­lenges par­tic­i­pants to trace the steps that led to the inci­dent, and deter­mine the extent of the com­pro­mise.

We rec­om­mend teams of four are put for­ward to par­tic­i­pate. If you are a “lone war­rior” don’t worry, we can add you to a team of other Splunk Security enthu­si­ast.
