SANS 2018 Cyber Threat Hunting Survey - Threat Hunting is a Process, Not a Thing

How are organizations preparing their environments for hunting? How are they accessing their critical data needed in a hunt? And how are they using the threat and operational data uncovered during the hunt? This, our third survey on threat hunting, looks at maturity of hunting programs and where they are going, along with best practices being used in organizations to detect and remediate threats that would otherwise remain hidden.

In this webcast, we will reveal how survey respondents answered questions that are immediately important to organizations conducting threat hunting.

In this webcast, SANS Threat Hunting and Incident Response Curriculum Chair Rob Lee will discuss:

  • Whether or not organizations are preparing their organizations for threat hunting with advanced planning, assessments, procedures and technical integrations
  • What prerequisites organizations should consider in preparing for a hunt
  • What data hunters need to access, how they are accessing it and usefulness of that data
  • Who does the hunting, who should do the hunting and whether or not hunting activities are coordinated across detection and response
  • Whether or not organizations are deploying continuous hunting to proactively look for threats, or simply following up on indicators
