Our next meeting is on December 12th. That meeting will be held at the First Center Building, 26911 Northwestern Highway Southfield, MI 48033 starting at 7pm.

This month presenter is Jeremy Neilson (@jeremyneilson) who will be discussing applying SEIM/IDS defenses to web applications:

Susie the Useful SOC Puppet: A blue-team bedtime story.

Susie spends her days looking at logs. Lots and lots of logs. But one day Susie discovered there was more to being a SOC puppet than just looking for APT1. Follow Susie and her team of puppets as we cover a couple of real-world attack scenarios and how we can apply our IDS alert findings to securing our vulnerable web applications.
