Sustainable Harvesting: How a Few Geeks Learned to Elastic Stack Logs

How do you build a network of devices and log taps that monitor security at the world’s largest conservation non-profit? Can it be done at low budget scale across over 100 offices effectively? Can defending against attacks on a laptop in Pennsylvania help to influence river flow metric collection?

Nick and Daniel have begun a journey to answer these types of questions, and would like to share how they are leveraging the Elastic Stack and other open source tools to generate, pull, and aggregate data from remote offices and better manage their security risk. They’ll also look at how a small group of geeks are working to set an example for broader data collection at their organization.
