Event Description
Microsoft will highlight key findings from the 2021 Microsoft Digital Defense Report and call attention to emerging trends in the global threat landscape as it pertains to challenges the Defensive Cyber Operations community may encounter when securing a Hybrid Enterprise (on-prem to cloud, and multi-cloud). The presentation will focus on the shifting cyber landscape from one that focuses on network security and isolation to an Assumed Breach/Zero Trust Model, and the innovative approaches from tooling to culture changes that are required to combat new threats. This discussion will offer the SOSSEC community an opportunity to better understand the benefits of cloud-based analytics, advanced threat detection capabilities, signal integration, automated response, and help identify opportunities for partnership with Microsoft.
