UEBA tools can successfully detect malicious and suspicious activity that otherwise goes unnoticed, but these new detection tools employ unfamiliar approaches (data science, nondeterministic methods, machine learning), and thus create their own deployment and operation challenges.

In this webinar Anton Chuvakin (LinkedIn profile, Gartner bio) covers the approaches that work with UEBA.

Discussion Topics:

  • When to use a new UEBA tool versus existing SIEM or DLP
  • How to select, test and deploy UEBA effectively
  • What is involved in UEBA ongoing operations

Live Webinar June 22nd, 2017 – 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EDT

Use cases and user stories are both excellent techniques for understanding what a user needs from a product.

While both have a similar purpose, use cases and user stories are not meant to be used interchangeably. That is why it’s important for a business analyst to understand the difference.

The older of the two techniques is the use case, which captures usage scenarios.

In other words, a use case documents how an individual uses a product to accomplish something of value. This technique works well for projects where functional requirements and usage scenarios must be – and can be – specified upfront. However, what if you can’t know the requirements upfront?

In a user story, the user and what they need the product to accomplish is also specified, but in contrast to use cases, at a much higher level.

Recognizing which technique is best suited to your situation is the key.

In this webinar you will learn to:

  • Determine when to apply use cases and user stories to define stakeholder requirements.
  • Elaborate use cases through scenarios.
  • Augment use cases and user stories with diagrams and visuals for better communication

Presenter: Dr. Martin Schedlbauer (LinkedIn profile) has been leading and authoring seminars and workshops in business analysis, software engineering, and project management for over twenty years. Martin, an accomplished business analysis subject matter expert, is a recognized leader in software development practices, a practicing scrum master, experienced software architect.
