  • 09:40 - 11:50
  • Sessions / Workshops
  • This session keeps everyone together for a walkthrough of Cognito detections.

  • Sessions / Workshops
  • In this session, those in the Incident Responder track will have an opportunity to share their experiences working with Cognito detections and analyzing the PCAPs and protocols that are essential to understanding what attackers are doing. Additionally, Incident Investigators will be able to share how they deep-dive into protocols that reveal hidden attacker behaviors and map Cognito detections to actions with network and endpoint security. Security Architects will work through a series of labs and discuss best practices for red team exercises.
