Arriving at a narrative: a hands-on journey into orchestrating cross-functional cybersecurity teams

Our industry has adopted myriad attack detection tactics, threat intelligence schemes and incident response plans over the past few decades with varying results. But rarely have any of these solutions provided a "big picture" narrative that helps an organisation improve its security. What are some of the more useful strategies, or what Dr Stanger calls "context engines", that have helped certain organisations effectively adjust their strategies and tactics today?
Dr Stanger will provide case studies based on conclusions drawn from CompTIA's cybersecurity research culled from thousands of subject matter experts, as well as his interactions with dozens of managers, executives and security techs from around the world. He will detail key interactions between these teams as they have cooperated to identify and react to indicators of attack and indicators of compromise. By the end of his presentation, you will have gained insights about how to bring value to core security activities, over and above Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR).
