    OTel Me About Observability
    Telemetry data is critical in solving both availability and performance issues, especially in distributed, polyglot architectures. Unfortunately, telemetry data has often been proprietary, at least when it comes to ease of use or combining different signals. OpenTelemetry is an open-source and vendor-agnostic project set on democratizing instrumentation and data collection of telemetry signals. Beyond providing the ability to generate and emit traces, metrics, and eventually logs, the project provides other core concepts, including the notion of resources, semantic conventions, and a collector component. In this talk, you will learn all about OpenTelemetry and how it can be used to help provide observability.

    Takeaways from this webinar include:
    - How to get started with OpenTelemetry
    - Harnessing the power of OpenTelemetry in Splunk Observability Cloud
    - The future of Observability

  • Enhance your Security Detections with Machine Learning Nov 18 2021 5:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Jose Hernandez | Sr. Manager, Threat Research, Splunk David Dorsey | Security Research, Splunk
    Detection engineers consistently come up with excellent rules and heuristics to detect malicious and anomalous behaviors in their environment; a perfect example of this is password spraying. But since we can’t have nice things, there is always software or behaviors that violate the base assumption for that detection. This doesn’t invalidate the rule, but it does require that the rule have exceptions built into the rules. Doing this manually is tedious and time consuming. When a rule consistently gives false positives, it is natural and understandable to just ignore the rule. But that comes at the expense of when the rule detects something that is malicious.

    In this talk we will use password spraying as an example use case to showcase how detections can be matured through the use of Machine Learning.

    - Join our webinar, “Enhance your Security Detections with Machine Learning” and learn:
    - How to take a data driven approach to detection development
    - How to mature a detection to detect increasingly sophisticated attackers
    - How to use Splunk’s Machine Learning Toolkit to understand behaviors
