Intelligent Orchestration: The Future of Incident Response

Ted Julian and Wendi Whitmore, Global Partner, IBM Security Services

This presentation will provide an in-depth exploration of how to improve incident response orchestration by focusing on increased intelligence. Attendees will learn how to enable their security teams to respond to incidents faster and more effectively, and will learn steps to implement Intelligent Orchestration in their own SOC.

3:30-3:50 pm and 4:00-4:20 pm

Integrating and Automating Incident Response

Hugh Pyle, Product Manager, IBM Resilient

This presentation will show users how to leverage their existing security infrastructure for IR through integrations and automation – empowering analysts to make smarter decisions faster and streamline critical workflows to achieve a more efficient response.

The Future SOC: Building the Intelligent Security Immune System

This panel discussion will highlight how organizations can resolve cyber incidents and proactively improve overall security by drawing upon a wide degree of data sources and intelligence. The panel features Ted Julian, John Velisaris from IBM Security Services, and Christopher Hankins from IBM Cognitive Security.

Building Agile Playbooks to Battle Complex Attacks

Allen Rogers, VP of Engineering, IBM Resilient

This presentation will outline strategies for building dynamic, agile, and automated incident response playbooks that adapt to incident conditions as a cyberattack unfolds, helping to ensure that analysts battle threats with real-time insight and intelligence.

4:30-5:10 pm

Security Orchestration and Incident Response

Bruce Schneier, Chief Technology Officer at IBM Resilient and Special Advisor at IBM Security

In this session, Bruce Schneier will explain how the current age of pervasive security threats is being compounded by IoT and connected devices, and will give attendees a look at how to achieve cyber resilience in an uncertain world of security attacks. He will outline how security teams can focus on understanding data and using orchestration strategy to execute efficiently on incident response.

5:15-6:15 pm

“Mixing with Bruce” Cocktail Hour

Join Bruce Schneier and IBM Security for a cocktail hour featuring the “Margarita Verde” – a new drink designed by Bruce exclusively for IBM THINK. Come enjoy a drink on us, network with your peers, and grab a free t-shirt and autograph from Bruce.


Wednesday, March 21

10:30 am–2:30 pm

Integrating and Automating Incident Response with Resilient

Allen Hadden, Architect, IBM Resilient

This in-depth and hands-on lab will demonstrate how to develop an orchestrated incident response hub. Attendees will learn how to build extensions in the Resilient IRP and pull together integrations in Dynamic Playbooks that automate the response process.

11:30 am–11:50 pm and 12:00-12:20 pm

Collaboration through Integration: Orchestrated Response with Carbon Black and IBM Resilient

Chris Berninger, Security Engineer, Carbon Black and Carlo Alpuerto, Synergy Technical Manager, IBM Resilient

In this presentation, attendees will learn real-world examples of processes that automatically enrich new security incidents with deep endpoint data from Cb Response into the Resilient platform, allowing them to respond faster and more efficiently, and gain enterprise-wide visibility into response.
