CSNF is designed to overcome the challenge of interpreting the babel of security alerts and notifications emanating from various cloud service providers and the proliferation of disparate cloud-based services. The lack of standard practices for security notification syntax and semantics places a significant burden on SOC teams when confronted with security threats that span multiple cloud services.
CSNF is available today as a free download in the form of a “Splunkbase Technical Add-on (TA)” application.
The operational infrastructure for the event will be provided by World Wide Technology (WWT), utilizing the company’s in-house Cyber Range, which is a real-world, cloud-based environment for security threat modeling. The platform includes a host of capabilities, including virtual desktops, identity and access management, multiple cloud services, monitoring facilities and cybersecurity tools.
Active participants will receive an authorized log in for the WWT Cyber Range.
