  • XDR Vs SIEM: Organizational Needs Sep 23 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Peter Varhol, Technology Evangelist, Gurucul
    Extended Detection and Response (XDR) and Security information and event management (SIEM)
    platforms perform roughly similar security functions, in that they both examine data to determine the
    likelihood of a breach and/or attack. They look for anomalous behaviors and flag them for further
    investigation. Some organizations question which approach is right for their security analytics needs.
    This webinar focuses on the respective strengths and limitations of both approaches, and what they
    share in common. It explains how each work, what data they look at and how they evaluate risk and the
    protection they offer. It offers guidelines on what circumstances are most appropriate for each solution in an

    Attendees will learn:
    1. The fundamental differences between XDR and SIEM.
    2. The strengths and limitations of each approach, including operating in the cloud.
    3. How to utilize both real-time and saved data analytics to determine the security of your computing
  • How to Detect Zero Day Attacks with an Analytics-Driven SIEM Recorded: Sep 8 2021 32 mins
    Peter Varhol, Technology Evangelist, Gurucul
    Zero day attacks are one of the most insidious security attacks for analysts to detect and mitigate. Because there are no published reports on them, security analysts have no idea what to look for. And because of the creativity of attackers, there are any number of ways for that attack to occur, and any possible number of bad outcomes for not quickly identifying it.

    Organizations have to be vigilant in observing and monitoring networks, systems, and traffic to identify attacks of unknown intent and composition. The pressure of zero day attacks on organizations and their security personnel is enormous, because of the uncertainties surrounding the type of attack and the vulnerability being exploited.

    This webinar describes zero day attacks and provides examples of attacks that have had significant consequences to organizations. It discusses how SIEMs using machine learning algorithms can be used to analyze traffic to quickly identify potential attacks and enable security analysts to mitigate those attacks before they cause harm to IT systems.

    Attendees will learn:
    1. Why zero day attacks can have a devastating impact on organizations.
    2. Why zero day attacks are so difficult to identify.
    3. How SIEMs using machine learning can enable organizations to quickly identify such attacks.

    Peter Varhol, Technology Evangelist, Gurucul
    Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) has become an important technique to monitor
    enterprise networks and systems to provide an early warning of potential attacks. More recently, cloud
    native SIEMS are replacing on-premises solutions in organizations, thanks to their cost, flexibility, and

    This webinar looks at what defines a cloud native SIEM, and how a cloud native SIEM makes sense for
    many enterprises. It looks at the architecture of cloud native SIEM, and how the architecture delivers
    for organizations looking for a strong solution with the flexibility to adapt to changing threats and
    organizational structures. It describes the characteristics of a cloud native SIEM and why organizations
    should consider this solution as a keystone of their network protection.

    Attendees will learn:
    - What it means to be cloud native.
    - How a cloud native SIEM makes sense for organizations in the Covid-19 era and beyond.

  • The Three Pillars of Behavior: Identity, Access and Activity Recorded: Aug 5 2021 29 mins
    Craig Cooper, COO & SVP of Customer Success, Gurucul
    Behavior is the leading threat indicator. Detecting and stopping insider threats and cybercriminals involves monitoring and linking three pillars of behavior:

    - Identity: Who are you? What accounts are associated with your identity? Being able to link numerous accounts with a single identity is key to building a 360 degree view of a user.

    - Access: What are you accessing and with what entitlements? A core component of behavior is the ability to understand access rights at the entitlement level. How clean is the access plane? Understanding what users are doing with their access rights is critical.

    - Activity: What are you doing, when and where?

    Analyzing the access and activity of a user for their accounts and entitlements is ground zero for predictive risk scoring. Activity alone fails to provide enough context and visibility. The gap with access must be closed to evaluate risk. Attend this webinar to learn more.

This will be an interactive session.
  • Cleaning House: Getting Rid of Malicious Insiders Recorded: Jul 1 2021 28 mins
    Jane Grafton, VP Marketing, Gurucul
    Insider Threats are a common concern for a lot of organizations, and Gurucul's Risk Analytics platform has a range of features that are specifically designed to handle the insider threat use case. The assumed challenge can be dealing with malicious insiders before they become an active threat, doing damage to the organization, its reputation, or it's customers.

    Machine Learning based security analytics can identify these malicious insiders by their behaviors and highlight the risk before they cross the line from a potential issue to an active threat. In many cases, malicious actors display telltale behaviors well before they act which means it's possible to identify the risk early enough to prevent an unhappy employee, or deliberate threat actor, from doing damage to the organization.

    Join us to explore how Gurucul's Machine Learning risk analytics platform can help you identify and remove malicious insiders before they generate a newsworthy incident.
  • Revolutionizing IAM Architecture with Machine Learning Recorded: Jun 24 2021 33 mins
    Peter Draper, Technical Director - EMEA, Gurucul
    To implement a risk-based approach to Identity and Access Management (IAM) you need advanced identity analytics powered by Machine Learning (ML). Best practices across the industry have proven that ML based identity analytics delivers significant improvements to IAM architecture and program management.

    Identity Analytics delivers the data science that improves IAM and Privileged Access Management (PAM), enriching existing identity management investments and accelerating deployments. Identity Analytics surpasses human capabilities by leveraging ML models to define, review and confirm accounts and entitlements for access. It uses dynamic risk scores and advanced analytics data as key indicators for provisioning, de-provisioning, authentication, and PAM.

    Attend this webinar to understand:
    • How machine learning improves IAM
    • How Identity Analytics reduces the attack surface by radically reducing accounts and entitlements
    • Top Identity Analytics use cases: Access Management, IAM, Identity Governance and Administration (IGA)
  • New Year, Same Breaches Recorded: Jun 17 2021 29 mins
    Jane Grafton, VP of Marketing
    In this webinar we’ll review the top data breaches that occurred during the first quarter of 2021. Perhaps predictably, attackers are using the same tactics to breach corporate networks they've been using for years: phishing, social engineering, ransomware attacks, third party vectors, unpatched systems, unintentional misconfigurations, and more.

    In parallel, cyber crime has evolved in the underground to the level of a commodity business that follows the same Something-as-a-Service model we see across the commercial software space. Attackers have become increasingly sophisticated and tenacious. Recent attacks against major vendors and government agencies have shown just how capable some of these well-resourced attackers can be.

    Join us for a deep dive into the types of cyberattacks we're seeing, how they are evolving, who is being targeted, and what you can do to detect and prevent them. It's a constant game of cat and mouse and our hope is that companies can be victorious against cybercriminals once and for all! It is possible... with the right cyber defenses.

  • Automating Incident Response with Machine Learning Recorded: May 27 2021 34 mins
    Mike Parkin, Director of Technical Marketing, Gurucul
    Incident Response is a key responsibility of any SecOps team whether they are sited locally, operating as a distributed group, or a function provided by an MSSP. With the sheer number of incidents they can face, it can be difficult for the team to stay ahead of the game. Fortunately, automation, based on AI-driven security analytics, can lighten the load and make the team more efficient, more effective, and better able to handle their workload. By applying artificial intelligence, the system can adapt and react to new threats even as they're developing. But beyond that, Machine Learning lets the system evolve over time, adjusting itself to the operational environment to optimize performance and efficacy.

    Join us as we explain how Gurucul's Unified Risk and Security Analytics platform uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to deliver advanced automated incident response.
  • Aligning Security Analytics with MITRE ATT&CK for Threat Detection Recorded: May 20 2021 30 mins
    Mike Parkin, Technical Marketing Engineer, Gurucul
    Organizations are using the MITRE ATT&CK Framework to identify holes in defenses, and to prioritize them based on risk. Gurucul has aligned its Unified Security and Risk Analytics platform with the MITRE ATT&CK to detect and enable automated responses to MITRE adversarial tactics and techniques. This provides organizations with unprecedented visibility to increase security coverage and automate controls in real-time.

    What’s the big deal? The big deal is machine learning and AI. The MITRE ATT&CK Framework is made up of rules and policies. You can greatly enhance the effectiveness of these known rules with behavior analytics to detect unknown threat patterns beyond MITRE tactics and techniques.

    Gurucul has out-of-the-box machine learning models to address risks and threats across the entire threat landscape resulting in actionable risk intelligence. Attend this webinar to learn how you can automate cyber defenses with machine learning models on big data.
  • The Value of an Analytics-Driven SIEM Recorded: May 6 2021 34 mins
    Craig Cooper, COO & SVP of Customer Success, Gurucul
    Conventional SIEM technologies focus on Events, providing filtering, rules, and basic analytics to display events. Unfortunately, most SIEM products still deluge the Security Operations team with a flood of information, which makes it hard to prioritize events by their actual risk. The conventional SIEM paradigm is to present Events and Incidents, as identified by rules-based analytics, without context.

    An analytics-driven SIEM takes a different approach. Attend this webinar to understand how leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on massive volumes of data brings context to an otherwise siloed security picture and highlights risks in ways conventional SIEM’s can’t. Detect unknown attack chains via machine learning and advanced analytics:
    • Establish baselines of normal activity and detect anomalies with machine learning
    • Provide situational awareness with real-time analytics, identifying risks before they develop into incidents
    • Correlate and analyze events across the entire environment to deliver a consolidated view of the entire threat situation
    • Link events and related data into security incidents, threats, or forensic findings
    • Enrich the context of security alerts to make it easier to investigate and detect elusive threats
    • Prioritize incidents to understand which incidents are particularly abnormal or dangerous
  • Risk Scoring - Bringing Meaning to Raw Data Recorded: Apr 29 2021 32 mins
    Mike Parkin, Technical Marketing Engineer, Gurucul
    Gurucul's Unified Risk Analytics platform takes siloed, disparate, security data sources, analyzes them, and presents a unified risk score that Security Operations personnel can actually use. But how does Gurucul's platform consolidate various events to come to that score? Join us to find out how we contextualize a sea of data to deliver usable information.
  • SIEM Advanced Threat Detection Recorded: Apr 1 2021 30 mins
    Mike Parkin, Technical Marketing Engineer, Gurucul
    In this day and age, security analysts need SIEM products that support advanced threat detection to discover known and unknown threats in real-time. Organizations must continuously monitor infrastructure, applications, and cloud platforms to protect against attacks that bypass traditional security defenses. Firewalls, endpoint protection, intrusion prevention, antivirus, and the like are rules-based solutions that cannot uncover unknown threats. Advanced threat detection requires dynamic and proactive techniques powered by machine learning, artificial intelligence, and security analytics.

    Attend this webinar to learn how Gurucul’s beyond SIEM capabilities support advanced threat detection with:

    • Risk Prioritized Alerts
    • Model Driven Security
    • Open Analytics vs. Black Box Analytics

    • Historical Real-Time Analysis vs. Short Term Analysis
  • AI Based Predictive Threat Hunting Recorded: Mar 11 2021 32 mins
    Mike Parkin, Director of Technical Marketing, Gurucul
    Gurucul provides a natural language and model driven threat hunting experience to minimize analyst time writing complex queries. Auto-recommended investigations, threat classifiers, security frameworks and cutting edge data models are used to represent the threat using modern visualizations, dynamic attribute summaries, and on-demand threat intelligence.

    A simple UI driven “point and shoot” experience gives investigation teams the ability to quickly build complex queries with inclusions, exclusions, functions, and operators. Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques identify any additional users or entities impacted which are similar to the queries executed. This allows analysts to get insights into potential threats which do not completely satisfy the query criteria but demonstrate similar patterns. Analysts can also publish such threat hunting queries as models to automate any future detections and risk scoring.

    Attend this webinar to learn how:
    • Pre-packaged threat hunting analytics can be used for both active and passive threat hunting capabilities
    • Real-time contextual linking helps enrich threat hunting data
    • Automated responses for adversarial tactics and techniques defined by the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework reduces security incident and risk MTTD/MTTR
  • Best Practices for Retiring your Legacy Kit Recorded: Mar 4 2021 32 mins
    Mike Parkin, Director of Technical Marketing, Gurucul
    Technology trends come and go, and (with them) so do the equipment that enabled or followed them. Before the mass migration to Cloud infrastructure, many organizations operated their own data centers with their own equipment. Many still do. Whether that kit was running applications on bare metal or playing host to the company's own virtualization farm, much of it remains in service and some of it has gotten well past it's "Best Before" date. As technology advances, equipment becomes more powerful, more efficient, and easier to maintain. Eventually, the old kit isn't worth keeping in service and it's time to say goodbye.

    Join us for a quick look at what's involved in retiring old equipment and migrating to it's replacement. We’ll also look at how security analytics can help show where the old iron may be adding unnecessary risk to the organization.
