SOAR around the Hash Table.

Show Notes

SOAR is a cybersecurity first principle strategy.

If your security team is overwhelmed fighting fires, you may suffer from alert fatigue. In this session, Rick reveals how Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) tools will improve your security data flow, shift operations left towards prevention, and free personnel for more strategic pursuits. SOAR technologies also complement DevSecOps, enable intrusion kill chain prevention, and The Hash Table agrees! They explain how SOAR solves their fight against limited resources, the convergence between security event management and response orchestration, and where and how to start.

Three members of the CyberWire’s Hash Table of experts:

  • Rick Doten
