The Threat Hunter's Toolkit: Traits, Techniques, and Favorite Tools of the Trade

For years, most IT security organizations have waited to detect new threats and then moved swiftly to defend against them. Today, however, there is a new wave of “threat hunting,” in which the security team takes a more proactive approach --seeking out potential threats using analytical tools. How do these enterprises build threat hunting programs? How do they staff them, and what tools do they need? In this Dark Reading webinar, a top expert discusses the process for building a threat hunting program, and for optimizing the efforts of designated threat hunters in the organization.
