Cyber Beat Live: The Art of Threat Hunting

March 28, 2017 from 05:00 PM – 06:00 PM UTC

No matter how secure you think your organization is, determined attackers will find a way in. What’s worse is, once they are in, they often go undetected for weeks – or even months. So how can you identify and disrupt these unknown attackers and threats? Cyber threat hunting. Cyber threat hunting is a new practice many mature organizations are now folding into their security strategy. It takes advantage of all available data sources – both internal and external – to generate a comprehensive understanding of your threat landscape while developing actionable intelligence about how to counter or mitigate these threats.
