In this episode, we will dive deep into the critical phases of a detection lifecycle. Christina Westfall, our expert Detection Engineer (DE), will guide us through the intricacies of detection engineering lifecycles, highlighting the good, the bad, and the ugly things encountered along the way.  We’ll start with the calm before the storm phase prior to the detection build, progress through the construction and testing of the detections, examine the outcomes, and end with addressing the subsequent "Now What?" steps.

This discussion will encompass potential strategies for generating effective coverage against emerging threats, methodologies for researching and developing detection techniques, and the critical process of testing these techniques' underlying logic. An important focus will, of course, be on the tuning process, which is vital for maintaining the efficacy and health of detections. Christina and Alex Hurtado, Detection Dispatch host, will also discuss her team’s innovative methods compared to the traditional SOC approach.

Join us for this 45-minute session packed with detection engineering insights. Arm yourself with knowledge, for with great knowledge comes great responsibility.
