Elevate Your SOC: Automation Trends
& Best Practices

On-Demand Webinar

The potential of automation in cybersecurity is enticing, but many organizations fail to realize the full extent of its benefits when they rely on a one-size-fits-all approach. This webinar will discuss how to reduce risk holistically, how to measure success within the Modern SOC, and how to implement automation that is tailored specifically for your organization’s needs so that it remains sustainable.

Join experts from Recorded Future, Splunk, Ernst & Young, and NOV as we explore these topics, including: 

  • Why it’s important to orchestrate before you automate
  • How to measure success of automation, but also the costs associated with automating processes
  • Best practices and things to avoid when it comes to your automation journey

Haylee Mills

Security Strategist at Splunk

Haylee went to school for 2D animation and worked in that industry for four years before 80 hour weeks and 40 hours of minimal pay crushed her soul and her dreams. During her quarter-life crisis living with her parents, she bicycled across the United States and dabbled in documentary film-making, aquaponics, and urban gardening. She ultimately wandered into information security as a career path thanks to a friend in the field who believed in her and dangled the starting pay for an information security analyst. Beyond the money, she quickly developed a passion for the craft as well as building pipelines for folks to achieve financial stability in this career. She started as a SOC analyst working crappy alerts, made better alerts and an elegant investigation workflow in Splunk with Risk-Based Alerting as a Content Engineer, and finally moved to Splunk to evangelize and advise on RBA as a Security Strategist.
