Protect, Detect, and Respond to Supply Chain Cyber Attacks (e.g. Solarwinds) Using Splunk Enterprise Managed Security Services
Date: Tuesday, March 23rd at 11am PST / 2pm EST
Cyber Risk in the supply chain has existed since the beginnings of cybersecurity as a discipline. The SolarWinds cyberattack campaign— also called Solorigate or simply the SolarWinds hack— leverages vulnerabilities in SolarWinds Orion software to accomplish a supply chain attack. Malware was embedded into the digitally-signed software and multiple organizations were compromised as a result.
Join BlueVoyant’s Chairman of International Business, Robert Hannigan, Mike Scutt, Director of Hunt Operations at BlueVoyant along with Ryan Becwar, Sr. Security Consulting Solution Engineer at Splunk for an in depth discussion about the SolarWinds attack, and learn best practices and strategies to strengthen your defenses. We will talk about the use of Splunk Enterprise Security to identify risks, and to actively detect and respond to these emerging threats. We will then explore how BlueVoyant responded to Solarwinds, highlighting the key advantages of using a Managed Splunk Security Service.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- What risks supply chains pose to businesses in today’s threat landscape
- About the nature of current and advanced adversarial strategies for exploiting supply chain vulnerabilities
- How to mitigate exploits from supply chain vulnerabilities
- The key advantages of working with a Splunk Enterprise MSSP/MDR provider to combat today’s security challenges and prepare for tomorrow’s threats
