LogRhythm announces record participation at its user conference

LogRhythm, announced over a 100 percent increase in customer participation at its 2019 RhythmWorld user conference. Ninety-three percent of attendees indicated via post-event survey that they gained value on their investment by attending LogRhythm’s third annual user conference, enhancing their understanding and usage of the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform. A notable representation of attendees was from the financial sector, as market realities continue to drive advanced security requirements.

RhythmWorld provides educational sessions for attendees to best learn how to defend against the threats that target their organizations, with the most popular focusing on LogRhythm’s module aligned with MITRE’s Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK) matrix.

Released earlier this year, LogRhythm’s ATT&CK module includes predefined correlation rules and dashboard content designed to detect specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) as categorized by MITRE, which the organization often associates with specific adversarial groups.

LogRhythm began its RhythmWorld conference series in 2017 to enable its users to engage in peer-to-peer learning, discover security trends and best practices, and help its users maximize their knowledge and use of the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform. This year, it expanded upon that goal. In addition to offering standard sessions to improve platform familiarity, LogRhythm introduced new hands-on opportunities to dive deeper into the platform, such as lab sessions hosted by platform engineers and an expanded capture the flag event. Furthermore, attendees could earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for attending various sessions, helping them maintain industry certifications.

“RhythmWorld is a time for learning, and we’re thrilled that our users had opportunities to gain knowledge applicable to the greater cybersecurity industry in addition to our platform,” said Mark Logan, CEO, LogRhythm. “RhythmWorld is fast becoming the standard among SOCs for education and sharing of knowledge and best practices.”
