Architecting a security observability strategy can provide heightened visibility into cloud-native infrastructures, such as microservices, serverless, and containers. Centering around cloud-native logs, metrics, and traces, a security observability strategy can unlock insights and aid in troubleshooting faster than traditional monitoring tools. Metric-based automation and the use of detection and remediation playbooks can also enable organizations to reduce the time to resolve events.

In this webinar, SANS and AWS Marketplace will discuss how to architect a security observability strategy in AWS. They will cover cloud-native security monitoring sources and guardrails, as well as integrating automation capabilities to reduce manual efforts. This will also include practical guidance and tips for executing on this strategy.

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by SANS senior instructor Dave Shackleford.

Attendees of this webinar will learn how to:

  • Build detection and remediation playbooks
  • Reduce the median time to resolution (MTTR) through automation
  • Integrate enterprise security event collection and analytics tools with cloud-native sources and guardrails
  • Identify common use cases and provide real world insights through customer success stories
