1. The CISOs Response Plan After a Breach | Webinar
There’s no escaping the fact that post-breach leadership is a part of every security team member’s job. Spearheading post-breach action and recovery is the ultimate test of a security leader’s skills, confidence, and mettle. But it is also an opportunity for you and your organization to collaborate and shine in the face of adversity. Whether you’ve lived through the experience of a previous breach, or are patiently waiting your turn, this webinar will help you navigate the waters of post-breach response for when the inevitable occurs.
In this episode of The New CISO podcast, Steve is joined again by Dr. Adrian Mayers, VP and CISO at Premera Blue Cross, to dig deeper into his knowledge of insider threat management and intelligence. As an experienced CISO, Dr. Mayersunderstands the difficulties of a cybersecurity career. With this in mind, he shares the day-to-day obstacles of the profession and what aspiring CISOs can expect from the job. Listen to the episode to learn more about the pressures CISOs face, the psychology of insider threats, and how to work past life’s challenges.
3. Administering Advanced Analytics Fundamentals (SaaS) | Data Sheet
In this two-day instructor-led course, Exabeam administrators will learn how to configure, support, troubleshoot, and optimize the Exabeam Security Operations (SecOps) Platform.

4. Onboarding Data for Advanced Analytics (on-prem) | Data Sheet
In this five-day virtual instructor-led course, administrators will learn how to configure the analytics components and the investigation capabilities of the Exabeam Security Management Platform.

This means a deep dive into the stages of the data flow and how to configure the key analytical components in Advanced Analytics, including rules, models, and parsers.
On a recent episode of The New CISO podcast, David Lingenfelter, Vice President of Information Security at Penn National Gaming, discussed the importance of constantly learning and evolving in the information technology (IT) security field.

9. Who Cares? Exabeam Cares | Blog
Recently, our company asked its employees to push the pause button at work to go out and serve in our communities. And we did. In a big way. Whether through centrally planned activities with colleagues or just on our own, our executive team asked us to invest in the communities where we live. As a result, Exabeamers all over the globe stopped what we were doing for a day and went to serve in soup kitchens, food pantries, community centers, and schools. We pulled weeds at Botanic Gardens in Southport, UK; served our Veterans in California, volunteered at schools in Africa, put together school kits in Pune, India, and much more.
