🔎 Article: Analyzing Honeypot Data with Sentinel | Martin Rothe

Why I like it: Now that we have a new Sentinel integration, I've been using it more and more (sorry Splunk!). One of the first things that I needed to do was get some data in to learn how to actually write a KQL query instead of just copying and pasting and hoping that it works. I've been using this blog by Martin Rothe to get honeypot and Suricate data into Sentinel to start building out some pretty slick dashboards.

💼 Podcast: Business Wars | David Brown

Why I like it: Business Wars is an entertaining and informative storytelling of the historical milestones of two corporations competing with each other. I love it for long car rides especially. They have covered a VARIETY of wars. They range from things like “Nintendo vs. Sega vs. Microsoft”, “Starbucks vs. Dunkin” , “Covid Vaccine Wars” and “Crypto Wars”

👟 Audio Book: Shoe Dog | Phil Knight

Why I liked it: Listened to this audiobook on my morning walks. The challenges that Nike faced, the great team that Phil built, and the singular focus and determination he had in the early days of Nike resulted in a captivating and entertaining read.
