Hunting Threat Actors Lifts My Spirits

Indicators Over Cocktails

Join guest Tim Helming for Indicators Over Cocktails – special federal and local government edition. In this installment, we’ll shake up some cocktails and mocktails and learn how to bolster defenses against future attacks, by quickly gaining context, profiling attackers, and enumerating threats. In this session, Tim will demonstrate how to:

  • Use Iris Detect and Investigate to build better situational awareness around adversary infrastructure—quickly
  • Leverage data to learn more about who or what is behind an IP address or domain in an attempted breach
  • Automate processes and alerts to create a profile of attackers to bolster defenses against future attacks
