June TASK

Speaker: Adrian Grigorof
Topic: Big changes in SIEMs: A comparison of cloud-born and traditional options

SIEM solutions have evolved a lot over the last decade – and we’re now in the midst of a cloud revolution for the market. Features and functionality, costs and the range of vendors are rapidly changing. Adrian Grigorof, Senior Security Architect at TELUS, will take us through SIEM comparisons and live demos of options available in the market. You will learn SIEM fundamentals, the difference between cloud and on-prem options, and what some of the costing looks like.

Adrian Grigorof has held senior IT consulting roles since 1993 and had been involved in a wide range of technologies, including operating systems, networking, databases, programming and security. For the last 15 years he has provided security architecture services for large Canadian companies, with a focus on network security design and security analytics. He developed a line of security log analyzers, implementing machine learning algorithms and integration with online knowledge-base sources..
