On October 7 and 8, thousands from around the globe tuned in for the SANS Threat Hunting Summit. Industry’s top practitioners and leading experts from near and far shared their latest techniques that can be used to successfully identify, contain, and eliminate adversaries targeting networks. It was a great opportunity for cybersecurity professionals and those new to the field.
We invited Ashton Rodenhiser of Mind's Eye Creative to create graphic recordings of our Summit presentations. If you missed a talk or are looking to view the SANS Threat Hunting Summit through a visual lens, take a look at the recordings below.
In addition to graphic recordings, PDFs of Summit presentations are available on the SANS Summit Archives page (SANS account required) and videos will be posted to YouTube over the next several months.
