Preparing You for a Threat Hunt: Strategies and Tools

Traditional security has focused on preventative defenses, but data breaches continue to occur despite organizations deploying an array of security tools. With cybercriminals and nation states continuing to innovate and find ways to bypass defenses, organizations continue to be in a reactive mode. Threat hunting flips this concept on its head with analysts trying to uncover unknown threats. However, most organizations are not properly prepared to threat hunt, as it requires the right data, tools, and expertise.

Join us on December 14, 2018 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at the Washington Hilton (1919 Connecticut Avenue NW) for an interactive, hands-on threat hunting master class. It will prepare you for a prospective hunt and provide practical insights on effective threat hunting strategies, such as where to start, what to hunt, and more. This scenario lead session will be founded on a proven framework to proactively protect the network. Attendees will utilize the Mitre ATT&CK Framework to assist in remediation of threats,
