Deep Dive into Apache Metron 

Monday at 6:00 pm
Explore Apache Metron through the eyes of experts. In this session, Metron committer, Michael Miklavcic, will talk in-depth about the features and capabilities of Metron: the real-time data ingestion, normalization, enrichment, triage, and management of application and security data at scale. Learn about the new enhancements available in Metron and future releases that help organizations optimize the performance and efficiency of their Security Operations Centers.

This is a great opportunity for any and all current Metron and Hortonworks Cybersecurity Platform users to get together for discussions about the platform and use cases. Participants will also take part in a simulating forum for collaborations and sharing of knowledge and experience within the wider Metron community.

Catch a hacker in Real-Time: Live visuals of bots and bad guys

Wednesday, June 20 at 2:50 PM - 3:30 PM, Meeting Room 230B
Cybersecurity today is a big data problem. There’s a ton of data landing on you faster than you can load, let alone search it. In order to make sense of it we need to act on data in motion, and use both machine learning, and the most advanced pattern recognition system on the planet: your SOC analysts. Advanced visualization makes your analysts more efficient, helps them find the hidden gems, or bombs, in masses of logs and packets.

In our live demo, we will catch some hackers compromising authentication systems to steal passwords. We will detect, and stop a botnet looking to steal our resources. Zoomdata’s real-time visualization will show data streamed and enriched by Apache Metron, and present a rich view for analysts to see all their organization’s security data and drill down fast to the specific areas that represent an early problem – before it becomes a major breach.

CyberSecurity with Apache Metron Crash Course

Thursday at 2:30, Meeting Room 212C/D
Introduction: This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to CyberSecurity powered by Apache Metron.

Format: A short introductory lecture on Apache Metron use cases and architecture, followed by a demo, lab exercises, and a Q&A session.

Objective: To provide a quick and short hands-on introduction to Apache Metron. In the lab, you will learn how to ingest and parse new security telemetry sources, add additional context by enriching the events, track, visualize the results and identify outlier behavior (aka; detect the bad actors).

Pre-requisites: Registrants must bring a laptop with an SSH client (e.g. Putty) and an up-to-date web browser (e.g. Chrome) installed, which will be used to connect to a cloud instance of Apache Metron.

Speakers: Ward Bekker, Dave Russell, Carolyn Duby, Sam Diener
