[5-13-22] “Hacking Complexity” – Super Cyber Friday

Please join us on Friday, May 13th, 2022 for Super Cyber Friday. Topic will be “Hacking Complexity: An hour of critical thinking about how to consolidate and simplify a security program.”

REGISTER for 5-13-22 Super Cyber Friday

Joining me for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • Is this a best of breed vs. best of platform debate?
  • Is the complexity problem born out of poor/complicated communications between tools and people managing those tools?
  • How are we solving problems? Are we relying on purchasing a tool to solve the problem or are we looking at what we have? Does the answer depend on your existing environment?
  • How are we disseminating policies across tools and departments?
  • Is there a way to know if we’re using our products correctly, that they’re reporting the correct information and we’re using them to their potential?
  • How do you go about consolidating?
  • Where are areas we can make less complex?
  • How do you successfully sunset a solution?
  • Can’t XDR take the place of a platform play?

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.
