  • Getting Started with Splunk (Hands-On)
    Here’s your chance to get hands-on with Splunk for the first time! Bring your modern Mac, Windows, or Linux laptop and we’ll go through a simple install of Splunk. Then, we’ll load some sample data, and see Splunk in action – we’ll cover searching, pivot, reporting, alerting, and dashboard creation. At the end of this session you’ll have a hands-on understanding of the pieces that make up the Splunk Platform, how it works, and how it fits in the landscape of Big Data. You’ll experience practical examples that differentiate Splunk while demonstrating how to gain quick time to value.
  • How to Design, Build and Map IT and Business Services in Splunk
    Your IT department supports critical business functions, processes and products. You're most effective when your technology initiatives are closely aligned and measured with specific business objectives. This session covers best practices and techniques for designing and building an effective service model, using the domain knowledge of your experts and capturing and reporting on key metrics that everyone can understand.
  • Splunk for Enterprise Security featuring User Behavior Analytics
    This session will review Splunk’s two premium solutions for information security organizations: Splunk for Enterprise Security (ES) and Splunk User Behavior Analytics (UBA). Splunk ES is Splunk's award-winning security intelligence solution that brings immediate value for continuous monitoring across SOC and incident response environments – allowing you to quickly detect and respond to external and internal attacks, simplifying threat management while decreasing risk. Splunk UBA is a new technology that applies unsupervised machine learning and data science to solving one of the biggest problems in information security today: insider threat. You’ll learn how Splunk UBA works in tandem with ES, or third-party data sources, to bring significant automated analytical power to your SOC and Incident Response teams. We’ll discuss each solution and see them integrated and in action through detailed demos.
  • 2:30pm – Breakout Sessions 4-6
  • Data Onboarding
    Splunk is a powerful platform that can harness your machine data and turn it into valuable information thereby enabling your business to make informed decisions, taking your organization from reactive to proactive. Just like any other platform, Splunk is only as powerful as the data it has access to, therefore in this session we will be conducting a walk thru of how to successfully on-board data, with samples of data ranging from simple to complex. We will also be taking a look at how to use common TA’s to bring valuable data into Splunk. This session is designed to give you a better understanding of how to onboard data into Splunk enabling you to unlock the power of your data
  • Getting Started with IT Service Intelligence (Hands On)
    Are you currently using Splunk to troubleshoot and monitor your IT environment? Do you want more out of Splunk but don’t know how? Here’s your chance to learn more about Splunk IT Service Intelligence (Splunk ITSI) and get hands-on with it for the very first time. We’ll kick off this session with a discussion on the concept of services, KPIs and entities and demonstrate how to use them in Splunk IT Service Intelligence. We’ll help you build custom visualizations and dashboards for personalized service-centric views. We’ll teach you how to navigate across multiple KPIs, entities and events with built-in visualizations and intelligently troubleshoot and resolve problems faster using Splunk ITSI.
  • Splunk Enterprise for Information Security (Hands On)
    Splunk is the ultimate tool for the InfoSec hunter. In this unique session, we’ll dive straight into the Splunk search interface, and interact with wire data harvested from various interesting and hostile environments, as well as some web access logs. We’ll show how you can use Splunk Enterprise with a few free Splunk applications to hunt for attack patterns representing SQL injection, data exfiltration, and C2 communication. We’ll show how to find evidence of RATs, brute force attempts, and directory traversal. Finally, we'll also demonstrate some ways to add context to your data in order to reduce false positives and more quickly respond to information. Bring your laptop – you’ll need a web browser to access our demo systems!
