The 2020 Threat Hunting Report

In 2020, Cybersecurity Insiders conducted the third annual research project on threat hunting to gain deeper insights into the maturity and evolution of the security practice. This Threat Hunting Report is based on the results of a comprehensive online survey of cybersecurity professionals, to gain deep insight into the latest trends, key challenges, and solutions for threat hunting management. The respondents range from technical executives to managers and IT security practitioners, representing a balanced cross-section of organizations of varying sizes across multiple industries.

The research confirms that organizations are increasing their operational maturity and investments in threat hunting. Organizations realize that proactively uncovering security threats pays off with earlier detection, faster response, and effective denial of future exploits that can damage business operations.

This survey also includes information surrounding:

  • Primary goals of an organization’s threat hunting programs
  • Threat Hunting Automation
  • Top benefits of threat hunting
