Splunk Boss of the SOC

Are you part of the best group of Security Analysts in Oslo? Are your threat hunters familiar with Splunk? Do you want to test your skills against other incident responders? mnemonic and Splunk have organized Boss of the SOC Oslo where you and your team can prove what you’re made of!

The Boss of the SOC (BOTS) is a Capture the Flag-esque competition that is played in teams of up to four players and hosted by Splunk and mnemonic. Contestants will use their own laptop (OS doesn't matter as long as it can load Splunk in its browser) to access the online BOTS environment. 

Players will role play as the quirky Security Analyst "Alice" who is starting her first day as a member of the Blue Team at Gotham City's own "Wayne Enterprise." 

Alice has been hired to investigate a massive security breach of WayneTec’s corporate network. Contestants will pivot through realistic event data in Splunk Enterprise, racing the clock to identify the who, the how and the where of a full forensic investigation. Players will be given a series of questions of varying type and difficulty. If they answer quickly… they get more points. The harder the question, the more points the player gets get. So, bring your out-of-the-box thought process, “can do” attitude and security prowess.

Customers who will benefit
BOTS is designed for Splunk customers who wish to compete in a fun and challenging one-day security competition.

Who should attend?
