Knowing how to perform basic monitoring and analysis can go a long way in helping infosec analysts do some foundation analysis to either crush the mundane or recognize when its time to pass the more serious attacks on to the the big boys. This presentation covers environment options for making your network monitor-able, three quick steps to triage and analyze alerts, and integrated distros that allows almost anyone with a general technical background to go from n00b to ninja (;)) in no time. Well maybe not a "ninja" per se but the closing does address follow-on resources for those wanting to dive deeper into the dark world of monitoring and analysis.

grecs has two decades of industry experience, undergraduate and graduate engineering degrees, and a really well known security certification. Despite his formal training, grecs has always been more of a CS person at heart going back to his VIC-20, Commodore 64, and high school computer club days.

Currently, he spends his days as a senior cyber intelligence analyst enhancing customer defenses through advanced analysis, customized training, and engineering improvements.
