Session Overview

In the SOC, defenders are often true to their name-playing defense to manage detections, assess risk, and protect the network from an ever-evolving barrage of threats. However, attacks don't start with alerts-they start with the infrastructure that attackers set up to deliver the attack. Proactive open-source investigations and external hunting practices can help shift your security posture from reactive to proactive.

Learn how you can use real-world attacks and open-source data to:

  • Identify high-risk infrastructure associated with threat actor activity
  • Rapidly investigate infrastructure associations to identify patterns and TTPs, and
  • Create profiles that you can use to hunt externally for threats relevant to your organization-moving left in attack detection by finding threats before they find you
