Summit Europe 2020 Scaling Security for Agile Organizations with Data Analytics by bp

November 17, 2020 04:00 PM PT

Progressive security organizations demand maximizing value of big data and data analytics platforms.

What if there were a way to enable security practitioners to exercise their domain expertise giving them direct access to data for objective decisions, abstracting the complexities?

In this talk, we will introduce the bp journey towards sustainable security whilst facilitating fast paced business change securely.

bp in collaboration with Elastacloud have assembled a cloud-native platform for collaboration around data insights that enable federated teams to maximize value from security data. This involved not only changing the platform but the way of thinking about data and modern event driven architectures to change traditional thinking in the security operations area. bp will also present one of their opensource projects, a Spark CEF Reader accelerating security operations using standard SQL syntax to hunt, query, and investigate threats without the need for any programming.
