Finding Context in Advanced Threat Hunting: How Humans and Machines Team to Outwit and Out-Maneuver Adversaries
Gathering the critical context needed for threat hunting means spotting patterns and abnormalities. Advanced analytics, the historical record of anomalous behavior in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and human+machine teaming make this ability faster and more effective.
At the same time, threat hunting is personal. Advanced threat hunters spend 70% more time on customization and fine-tuning tools and techniques to identify the footprint of an attacker.
Security operations professionals who are looking to improve their threat hunting abilities should join renowned cybersecurity expert Peter Stephenson and McAfee’s Michael Leland on 13 September, as they discuss:
