New Stealthwatch Cloud Learning Module
In the new Stealthwatch Cloud Learning Module, we highlight capabilities around detection and response. You can now add value to the Security Operations Team by automating all the mundane tasks of
- alert response
- event triage
- data gathering
- threat investigation
The lab begins using a Python script to poll the Stealthwatch Cloud API for any new alerts. Once a new alert is detected, a workflow kicks off which compiles all the alert data and stores it into an array. Now that you have a list of all the alerts, you can dive deeper into alert observations.
The lab focuses on two alert types – Inbound Port Scanner and Excessive Access Attempts. In reality, Now you can focus on any alert type that is meaningful to you or your organization. You simply gather all the observations associated with these alerts and create a Webex Teams message that provides:
- alert type
- alert ID
- attacker and target observables
- time of the attack
- a redirect URL that takes you directly into the Stealthwatch Cloud alert details
