Jamie Butler is the Tech Lead at Elastic. The vast majority of breaches are not launched by nation states or foreign militaries, but individuals and cyber crime groups with varying degrees of experience, often looking for weaknesses in enterprise systems or processes.

This discussion will focus on ways an organization can reduce complexity and improve security efficiency and scale.
