    Catch a Pentester: Putting Your SIEM to the Test

    A successful penetration test is the ultimate stamp of security approval, but not every SIEM is up to the task.

    How do you know that your SIEM will detect a pentester lurking within your environment? 

    Hear from pentester Brian Johnson, president of 7 Minute Security, about his trials and tribulations testing various SIEMs in a pentest environment — and which products made the cut. He’ll be joined by Blumira’s Amanda Berlin, Lead Incident Detection Engineer and Jeremy Young, Director of Partner Strategy, who will explain how Blumira detects various attack techniques.

    You’ll learn about:

    • Key techniques that a pentester will use to perform reconnaissance, scanning, and gaining access into your environment 
    • Ways to test your SIEM to determine its pentest readiness 
    • How Blumira fared in a pentest environment 

    This interactive, conversational-style session encourages questions and engagement with viewers – so sign up today for access to our security experts.
