This event qualifies for 12 CPEs

Defending against attacks is an ongoing challenge with new threats emerging all the time. Do you want to enhance your current skill set and become even better at defending your organization? Are you looking for the latest ways to mitigate the most recent attacks? The blue team represents information security professionals on the front line of defending anorganization’s critical assets and systems against attacks and threats from adversaries.


Blue team professionals are highly skilled at deploying actionable techniques for timely detection, responding to compromises, and monitoring adversary activities to maintain and improve security over time. It’s an ongoing effort, day in & day out. Whether hunting for threats, designing a defensible security architecture, or analyzing log data, it’s the skills and agility of blue teams that enable world-class detection and defensive capabilities.
