Decorating Multi-Cloud Security Notifications

Spring 2021
Cloud Security Notification Framework (CSNF) is an open source cloud security reporting system that has the support of most of the CSPs. CSNF defines common definitions and syntax of cloud security events/alerts and alarms.  CSNF “decorator” these security events/logs etc so they can be ingested by a large number of tools to drive  new dashboards so security teams may assess their multi-cloud security posture. The CSNF decorator provides translation and log enrichment services to increase multi cloud security visibility and reduce SecOps toil. Its use cases are in security data lakes, SIEM and SOAR (Security Orchestration and Automated Response) security infrastructure. In this session, you will learn about CSNF and see the first CSNF decorator demonstration so you can start your own CSNF journey.
