Topic: Practical Cyber Threat Hunting
Today it is almost considered negligent to wait for an alert from IDS/IPS, firewalls, NAC, and endpoint security products before taking action when it comes to cyber threats.
For years, a lot of us who have been in the industry for a while have engaged in exercises where we go out into the environment and actively look for threats to hand off to other teams like incident response to contain and eradicate.
Enter the world of threat hunting. We will side step any product marketing and dig deep into what threat hunting actually is. This presentation will be 1 half high level discussion of value and applicability to today’s environments, followed by an exciting demonstration of hunting a threat in a live environment.
