Threat hunters and incident responders rely on intelligence to see, identify and respond to attacks. Historically, they have used a variety of different intelligence sources, including open-source intelligence (OSINT), Machine Intelligence (SIGINT) and Social Media Intelligence (SOCMINT). However, the one constant behind all attacks is that they are human-driven. As threat actors keep innovating to make their attacks more difficult to see and stop, another form of intelligence is becoming critical for cybersecurity successhuman intelligence (HUMINT). 

In this session, well share best practices for conducting your own HUMINT, provide uses cases for using this intelligence, and discuss some common dangers and challenges with threat actor engagement. Make sure you attend to find out how your organization can leverage Human Intelligence to make smarter cybersecurity decisions.
