Our colleagues with the DC chapter of ISSA-NOVA have invited us to join them on Tuesday, August 18 for their monthly chapter meeting featuring:  

Incident Handling & Threat Hunting w/ Security Onion
by Tyrone E. Wilson

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 6:30 pm

The DC Chapter will be hosting the meeting virtually. Click here to RSVP.

Mr. Wilson will discuss how to use a free and open source tool like Security Onion (SO) to provide hands-on experience and increase our knowledge in incident response and threat hunting. This event is for those with minimal experience working with detection alerts, pcap files, and log management. We will learn how to setup Security Onion at home or on an enterprise network and use its features to complete various network defense challenges. Attendees will leave with a higher level of confidence in network defense as well as the ability to crush their next analyst interview. Participants will also receive a booklet of instructions and credentials to a live SO server which will allow them to continue to practice their new found skills from anywhere in the world.
