It’s my pleasure to welcome Martyn Crew from Gigamon for this 50th Episode of the Packet Forensics Files. It’s a great milestone to have reached, and the series continues to grow in popularity – thanks to people like Martyn who have joined me to share their valuable expertise and advice.

In this episode Martyn, a 30-year veteran in the cyber security and network management space shares his expertise on the limitations and risks associated with exclusively using log and meta-data as the primary resources for your security team’s investigations. He discusses various use cases where network traffic and full packet data can play a crucial role in security investigations, highlighting the potential oversights that could occur when you rely solely on log data.

We talk about how to address the scalability challenges of leveraging full-packet data and delve into the storage and retention obstacles that many organizations fear when looking at solution options.

Finally, Martyn suggests how to balance the telemetry sources and costs for your SOC team, and shares some key considerations for maintaining visibility in your hybrid cloud infrastructure encompassing both on-prem and public or private cloud environments.
