Topic: Best Threat Hunting Practices for Security Operations Centers
Abstract: As cybercrime continues to rise, it costs companies around the world millions of dollars every year. In response to the increasing frequency of malicious attacks, the most difficult challenge security operations centers (SOCs) face today is detecting existing threats that are as yet unknown within an organization.
Threat hunting, an information security strategy, is one of the biggest priorities for organizations today. A SOC equipped with active threat hunters can minimize the organization’s risk of attack, both internally and externally.
This webinar explores some of the best threat hunting methodologies SOCs can implement to detect indicators of compromise and the tactics, techniques, and procedures and advanced threat protection methodologies that can ensure better threat detection and response.
