Monitoring & More with Splunk: Will the (RMF) Circle Be Unbroken
January 26 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am UTC-5
The last step of the Risk Management Framework (RMF) is to monitor security controls. Splunk is a software platform that can rapidly ingest and search through large amounts of data for various purposes such as cybersecurity incident detection and monitoring of systems. This presentation will provide a high-level introduction and overview of Splunk architecture, operation, use cases, etc. For reference, Splunk offers a free Fundamentals 1 course at https://www.splunk.com/en_us/training/free-courses/splunk-fundamentals-1.html
Joseph Wang has over 15 years of IT experience including Splunk dashboard development, Oracle database administration, Linux and system configuration of selected controls for PCI audit compliance, and project management. He holds an MBA and certifications including Certified Information Systems Security Professional, AWS Solutions Architect – Associate, and Splunk Administration 6.
NOTE THE LOCATION: We will once more very happily meet at the wonderful Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) Reston Center, 1821 Michael Faraday Drive, Reston, VA 20190, in Room 310. It is a short distance from the Weihle-Reston East Metro station on the Silver Line. We can arrive 30 minutes before and stay 30 minutes after our meeting (9am-12pm).
Besides earning Professional Development Units (PDUs) for participating our RMF LifeBoat ISSA Education Group meeting, we all receive the encouragement and help we need for our cyber security professional growth. The friendly interactive presentations by our members of the meetup always lead to lively respectful discussions. Members always take away information that they that can be applied on the job in the following weeks! In additional our LifeBoat group meetings provide opportunities for the all-important professional networking. If you have a vexing problem, share with like-minded security professionals. They may have already successfully developed a way forward to resolve it.
