Today, many organizations around the globe struggle with getting top-tier threat hunters. Although threat hunting has become a mandatory task to establish an acceptable level of security, the demand for skilled hunters far exceeds the number of available specialists.

In this new research, SANS queried organizations about how they approach threat hunting, the barriers to success and how they measure their efforts. Are security pros short on time or staff, or well-prepared for threat hunting? Are they finding effective tools and data, or do they struggle for help? And, even if they have a programmatic approach to threat hunting, how do they claim success? SANS instructor Mathias Fuchs will address these points and provide some practical, actionable advice for would-be and current threat hunters.

Join us by registering now for this webcast to learn how your peers are implementing threat hunting and how effective it is.
