The cybersecurity market is teeming with new tools and technologies, each promising to detect and respond to threats better than the rest. But if your business is like most, you’re probably struggling with a shortage of security-focused manpower and expertise to manage those tools with skill, speed, and precision. The reality is that effective security programs can only result from the fusion of technology, automation, and human-led analysis. It is this concept that gave birth to the promise (and surrounding hype) of Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

In this session, Karl shares his perspective on the requirements of a modern threat detection and response program:

  • What is MDR, really?
  • The three critical functions that cannot be “fully-automated”
  • Examples of data breaches and how the right combination of tools, people, and process could have saved the day
