The Evolution of Threat Hunting

Threat hunting continues to evolve for organizations that focus on proactively detecting and isolating Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) that might otherwise go undetected by traditional, reactive security technologies.

While many SOCs are struggling to cope with the current security threat workload, more organizations are adopting threat hunting as part of their security operations. They are discovering that proactive threat hunting can reduce the risk and impact of threats while improving defenses against new attacks.

In 2021, Cybersecurity Insiders conducted the fourth annual threat hunting research project to gain deeper insights into the maturity and evolution of the security practice.
