Carson Zimmerman Versus Anton Chuvakin: A Live SOC Debate!
Bloggers and social media pundits are full of grandiose proclamations and claims about security operations. SIEM is dead. The only way to run a SOC is to outsource. Everything is encrypted, so don’t bother with network monitoring. Data collection only requires one schema. Automation will eliminate the need for all humans in the SOC.
The list goes on.
Indeed the discourse has gotten a little bit unhinged at times. So we ask: When it comes to making observations about hot SecOps topics, what separates hyperbole and reality? Where does fiction end and truth begin? And, perhaps, is there more than one correct answer?
To help make sense of these polarizing times, two of the most renowned SecOps heavyweights -- Google’s Anton Chuvakin and Microsoft’s Carson Zimmerman -- entered the virtual ring to set the record straight during a fair and balanced debate (with some occasional fireworks mixed in).
In this moderated discussion, Chuvakin and Zimmerman cut through the hype and the FUD to deliver a balanced, multi-faceted view of some of the hot-button issues across SOC, SIEM, SOAR, EDR, and more.
