About osquery@scale:

osquery@scale is a two day event taking place at Dogpatch WineWorks in San Francisco, January 22 & 23rd. The event is focused on surfacing osquery security use cases - the good, bad, and ugly - told from the mouths of those who’ve lived and breathed at scale deployments in their production environments. Join security practitioners from Financial Services, SaaS, Higher-Ed, Hi-Tech, and a variety of other industries as they share first hand learning from osquery deployments solving for incident investigation & threat visibility, compliance, asset inventory, cloud vs. on-prem, and much more.

osquery@scale is a knowledge-sharing environment meant to help security practitioners and leaders fully immerse themselves in the highs and lows of real-life osquery deployments. Through end-user stories, attendees will better understand the variety of security use cases, limitations and benefits across operating systems and environments, skills and abilities required for use, and other considerations to be made when building strategic at scale deployment plans. Our goal is to connect osquery users with like-minded osquery-curious peers. This conference is being hosted by Uptycs.
