March 2016 Public meeting - Peel Back the Layers of Your Network with Security Onion

Our next ISSA meeting will be Thursday, March 31 and will feature Doug Burks and Security Onion! This free meeting is open to the public, so please share with your friends and security colleagues! We'll also have a report from our bi-annual financial audit and we'll be electing officers for the next 2-year term, so please make every effort to attend if you're a member.

Security Onion is a Linux distro for intrusion detection, network security monitoring, and log management. It's based on Ubuntu and contains Snort, Suricata, Bro, OSSEC, Sguil, Squert, ELSA, Xplico, NetworkMiner, and many other security tools. The easy-to-use Setup wizard allows you to build an army of distributed sensors for your enterprise in minutes!

Doug Burks started Security Onion in 2008 to provide a comprehensive platform for intrusion detection, network security monitoring, and log management.  Today, Security Onion has over 200,000 downloads and is being used by organizations around the world to help monitor and defend their networks.  In 2014, Doug started Security Onion Solutions LLC to help those organizations by providing commercial support and training.  Doug is a CEO, public speaker, teacher, former president of the Greater Augusta ISSA, and co-founder of BSides Augusta, but what he really likes the most is catching bad guys.
