Running a SOC on Microsoft security solutions: lessons learned.

When Microsoft set out to become a security company 5 years ago, Alex jumped on the bandwagon by a happy coincidence. Since then, he has built and trained security operations teams not only with his team, but also with global players. In this session, Alex shares what he has learned over the years, what the biggest challenges of young global teams are and how to address them. We will discuss organizational challenges as well as technical requirements such as comprehensive orchestration, automation and response to security issues (XSOAR).
