The ThreatQuotient Crash at RSAC and FICChris Jacob
It had been a long time since many of the ThreatQuotient Crash had attended a security industry conference in person, and wouldn’t you know we had two at the same time—RSAC 2022 in San Francisco, CA and FIC 2022 in Lille, France. It was a welcomed opportunity to get out from behind our screens and reconnect with customers, partners and colleagues face-to-face.
This year’s theme for RSAC was “Transform” and FIC’s theme was “Shaping Europe’s Digital Future.” Although the wording was different, the overarching message was similar. The threat landscape has escalated over the past two years, bookended by the pandemic and the evolving geopolitical environment. As SOCs continue to modernize and accelerate their efforts to become detection and response organizations, they are increasingly looking to data, automation and integration to move them along their journey, faster.
At RSAC we were excited to demonstrate one of our latest innovations that can help. ThreatQ TDR Orchestrator enables a data-driven approach to SOAR and XDR that accelerates threat detection and response across disparate systems for more efficient and effective security operations. Applying automation using traditional process-driven playbooks works fine if you’re in a static environment doing the same thing over and over again. But in detection and response, which is dynamic and variable, that’s not the case. ThreatQ TDR Orchestrator’s data-driven approach to automation reduces playbook runs by as much as 80%, ensures output is relevant and high priority, and enables teams to learn from the actions taken to improve over time.
At FIC we partnered with Orange CyberDefense to highlight our new joint offering, designed to streamline security operations by bringing greater visibility to governance and also support technical teams as they mature their SOC and collaborate with the CERT. Attendees learned how the integrated solution enables bidirectional exchanges between these two teams so that they can more efficiently and effectively address use cases including detection, retrospective threat hunting, incident analysis and response.
We came away from these events excited by these offerings and the responses from the attendees who received a demo. The challenges cybersecurity professionals face right now may seem daunting. But throughout the 50+ years this industry has been in existence we have continued to step-up and transform our approaches to strengthen defenses and now is no different. We know that data, automation and integration will continue to be driving forces behind your journey to SOC maturity and we’re excited to be a part of it.
Where will the Crash be next?
If you didn’t get a chance to stop by and visit us, more opportunities are coming soon. We’d love to meet with you at Infosecurity Europe in London, June 21-23, and we’ll be at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas, August 10-11.
