Even though their processes aren't formal or mature, respondents reported benefits from their hunting practices, including reduce attack surfaces and detection of unknown threats in the enterprise, according to the 2016 SANS Survey on Threat Hunting. In that survey, 74% of respondents who use threat hunting said that hunting for threats reduced their attack surfaces, while 59% cited more accurate response, and 52% found previously undetected threats that were active in their enterprises.

This new 2017 survey, publishing in association with the SANS Threat Hunting and Incident Response Summit, further defines how organizations apply threat hunting to enterprise response and detection, while also bringing out new best practices for integration and use of threat-hunting information. During this session, the second in a two-part series, attendees will learn about:

  • Tools and skills utilized for successful hunts
  • Formality of threat-hunting programs and who staffs and leads teams
  • Required data feeds and collectors
  • Future uses for threat hunting
  • What respondents have on their wish lists
