About this talk

Presented by: CSA Washington DC Metro Chapter SaaS powers the modern workplace, as organizations move their critical business systems such as email, collaboration, sales and marketing to third-party SaaS applications. With more and more of the business data sitting in these cloud applications, threat-focused teams need to figure out how to run detection and incident response workflows on systems they don’t own and control. Obsidian CTO and former NSA engineer Ben Johnson will discuss how you can get better at detecting, investigating, and responding to unwanted behavior such as unauthorized access across multiple SaaS platforms using native cloud capabilities and third-party systems.
