You’ve likely heard the phrase “left and right of boom” in relation to the activities that take place before and after a cybersecurity incident. Log management plays a critical role both left and right of boom. I previously explained how log management left of boom helps reduce the risk of an attack. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the value of log management right of boom, or after an attack, when you’re in incident response mode.

A Scrum master has two sets of responsibilities. The first responsibility, which most Scrum masters concentrate on, is to facilitate the Scrum process within the development team. The second and equally important responsibility is to promote the Scrum process externally. In other words, to educate the business on what it means to be agile. The observability that comes from logging everything can help with this often-neglected task.

Machine learning has gained popularity in cybersecurity, and for good reason: in the never-ending race against dwell times, security professionals are looking for an advantage. While machine learning can help reduce the mean time to detect and respond to a threat, organizations should be careful not to rely so much on machine learning that they forget to empower their most important asset: human intelligence.

It’s a mistake to think log management tools are a simple reactive security tool. A fully modern log management platform does more than just facilitate threat hunting and forensics. Optimal log management helps generate new insights from the data contained in your logs by providing customizable dashboards to view and explore them. Additional features including alerts, and automation speed up processes and make a security team more responsive in real time.

When meeting with people who are evaluating log management solutions, I often hear the same question: Why should I pay for Humio when I can get open-source software like Elasticsearch for free? It’s a fair question. Unfortunately, while open-source solutions look cheaper initially, they come with hidden costs and even greater business risk. Let’s look at three often-overlooked issues that increase the cost of open-source log management.

We are big proponents here at Humio for logging everything, but we’re well aware that others in the industry don’t see log management the same way we do. That’s understandable. When operating from a traditional log management point of view, logging everything can be problematic. In our recent Log Management Course on centralizing log collection and management, we reviewed some of the facts and myths of logging everything.

In the aftermath of the SolarWinds attack, security professionals debated about which is the most effective method for stopping cyberattacks: prevention or detection. Although detection and prevention each serve a vital role in the fight against cyberattacks, the two are often exclusively discussed as distinct methods. There is a lack of focus on integrating prevention and detection. A resilient security posture requires both.

In this talk, I'll walk you through the three facets of my adventure: my artistic process and its deconstruction, how I applied genetic algorithms to serve as a substrate for creativity, and the underlying systems that made it possible. Along the way, I'll also share a bunch of interesting implementation details, entertaining corner cases and bugs, some higher level thoughts -- and, perhaps more importantly, questions -- about making art in this way, and, of course, some art!

The simple goal of observability is to make systems better. Gaining insights into the behavior of systems is critical to improve their overall health and resiliency and this is imperative for distributed systems, especially those with more cloud native architectures like microservices. But observing these complex software architectures can be a real pain.
