Threat Hunting Primer: Moving From a Reactive to a Proactive Mindset

Presenter:  Roger Ofarril

In this presentation we discuss why security operations need to move from a reactive to a proactive mindset. Detection can only take you so far. As attackers get more sophisticated defenders need to up their game and proactively look for those targeting them. But how do we get there? We present an overview of the threat hunting concept and how it is different from traditional approaches such as incident response and forensics.
