Azure Sentinel this Week - Issue #29

And, the beat goes on.
Welcome back everyone! Except for some family health issues (aging parents) this past week, the week has been a good one here in the Trent household. I hope the week was equally good for you.
I just have a couple things to share this week before leaving you to the newsletter content.
First, Part 2 of our Azure Sentinel Notebooks Ninja blog series is due soon. We had planned to release it a week ago, but we’re working through some technical difficulties and waiting for a couple other important pieces to also be available - specifically some awaited documentation that helps fill in gaps. You can still catch up with the rest of us by reading (or re-reading) through Part 1: Becoming an Azure Sentinel Notebooks ninja - the series! This way we can all progress through the learning together, somewhat like it would be if we were all packed into a real, in-person workshop. Imagine that. Those were the days, huh?
Another note about this is that we will also be providing an actual Ninja certificate for those that complete the knowledge check once the series is done. People love the Ninja certificates! So, there will be a reward for your efforts to learn about Azure Sentinel Notebooks.
Second thing to highlight, is that we’ve released the schedule for our upcoming security webinars for the next couple months. You can find all of them HERE, but I thought I’d take the opportunity to include the Azure Sentinel-specific ones to whet your appetite.
  • September 14 Azure Sentinel | Learn About Customizable Anomalies and How to Use Them
  • September 15 Azure Sentinel | What’s New in the Last 6 Months
  • September 29 Better Together | OT and IoT Attack Detection, Investigation and Response
  • October 5 Better Together | Azure Defender and M365 Defender
  • October 6 Azure Sentinel | Turbocharging ASIM: Making Sure Normalization Helps Performance Rather Than Impacting It
  • October 18 Azure Sentinel | SAP Mini-Series Part 1: Introduction to Monitoring SAP with Azure Sentinel for Security Professionals
  • October 25 Azure Sentinel | Explore the Power of Threat Intelligence in Azure Sentinel
  • October 28 Azure Sentinel | What’s New in Azure Sentinel Automation
  • November 9 Azure Sentinel | SAP Mini-Series Part 2: Deep Dive - End-to-End Installation of SAP for Azure Sentinel
  • November 10 Azure Sentinel | Decrease Your SOC’s MTTR (Mean Time to Respond) by Integrating Azure Sentinel with Microsoft Teams
  • November 16 Azure Sentinel | Create Your Own Azure Sentinel Solutions
  • November 22 Azure Sentinel | Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Using the New Azure Monitor Agent (AMA) with Azure Sentinel
I mention these for a selfish reason, too. I was put on the webinar team this past week, so you will find me at each of these capturing your questions and supplying answers during the live event. So, if you need extra incentive to attend one of these fantastic learning events, you can now show up and play “stump the chump” and see if you can stymie me in this new capacity.
Next week, I’ll have some tidbits to share about some upcoming events I’m speaking at (both virtually and in-person).
Until then…
