Docker’s adoption rate for DevOps continues to grow, almost doubling in the last year. Booz Allen is always researching ways to streamline the Splunk development and testing processes and has identified Docker as a viable solution. This solution will allow Splunk development for many different roles and use cases. In this session, the presenters will briefly cover what Docker is and what the benefits are of using Docker for Splunk development, as well as demonstrating and sharing a scripted deployment of a multi-site clustered Splunk development environment and providing specific use cases that focus on building custom Splunk apps, test configurations, dashboards, saved searches and knowledge objects. Finally, they will provide a brief overview of Docker’s native Splunk Logging Driver.
Why does diversity matter in business? McKinsey & Company’s latest research found that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35 percent more likely to have higher financial returns than the average company in their sector. Join this moderated panel discussion with senior executives including CHRO at Splunk Tracy Edkins, President and CEO at The Software Alliance Victoria Espinel, Senior VP at Booz Allen Hamilton Dee Dee Helfenstein and the Co-Founder of the Mobile Alliance for Global Good Larry Irving to learn how they’re improving diversity and inclusion at a systemic level. Panelists will provide perspectives on the importance of diversity in driving innovation and practical guidance on how to move this initiative forward. Learn about their distinct career paths, across different industries and organizations, and how they achieved success.
This session will provide real-world examples of how one data-science team has been providing quick turnaround operational support within the federal sector with our client (U.S. Cyber Command). We will walk through how our agile workflow allows flexibility in identifying data analytic needs to complement cyber analysis, include a real-world scenario showing how we fought through cultural barriers to deliver impact-to-security reporting and outline how Splunk can be leveraged for analyzing both big and small data challenges, while leveraging machine learning. Those that attend this session will walk away armed with actionable steps they can employ within their own government organizations that will foster growth and collaboration between cyber analysts, mission directors and data scientists alike! At the conclusion of our talk, we will announce new modular advanced analytics/machine learning apps that were developed with the Booz Allen and Splunk partnership and tested in Operations.
Today’s industrial, manufacturing and building management processes rely on a vast array of operational technologies, including industrial control systems, to support their day-to-day operations. Escalations in cyberattacks have prompted a greater focus on securing these critical systems, and gaining visibility into them has never been more important. Over the past year, Booz Allen and Splunk have collaborated to pilot an OT cybersecurity monitoring solution that provides enhanced visibility and anomaly detection within several OT environments. By aggregating data from within and around the process itself – as well as relevant outside sources – the solution can detect a myriad of the most common malicious activities and alert security teams. This session will highlight dozens of unique OT use cases we have implemented. In this customer success story, Splunk’s solution identified critical vulnerabilities and enhanced the organization’s cyber and operational resilience.
