The goal of security log analysis is to more efficiently leverage log collection in order to identify threats and anomalies in your research organization. This half-day training will help you tie together various log and data sources to provide a more rounded, coherent picture of a potential security event. It will also help you understand log analysis as a life cycle (collection, event management, analysis, response) that continues to become more efficient over time. Interactive demonstrations will cover both automated and manual analysis using multiple log sources, with examples from real security incidents. 45% of the sessions will be devoted to hands-on exercises where students will analyze real log files in order to find security incidents. A knowledge of Unix commands such as grep, awk and wc are ideal for this class, but not required as the algorithmic methods can be applied to other systems. A brief primer on these commands will be provided. We have expanded our exercise this time to include both command line and Elastic Stack based analysis. This will be an interactive session allowing Q&A and also will feature interactive polls to enhance the audience’s learning experience.
