This hands-on meetup will walk attendees through leveraging the open-source ELK (Elastic Stack) to analyze logs to proactively identify malicious activity. The basic tools and techniques taught during this meetup will lay a foundation that can be used to investigate isolated security incidents or implemented at scale for continuous monitoring and hunting. Attendees will be provided with access to a preconfigured ELK (Elastic Stack) cluster and extensive sample logs containing diverse malicious events waiting to be discovered on a simulated enterprise network. Attacker artifacts will be mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework and tagged accordingly in the provided logs to help demonstrate the value of log enrichment and a methodological approach to adversary and anomaly detection.
