Despite billions spent on security technology each year, it seems little progress has been made to reclaim the advantage from attackers.  Modest reconnaissance by a malicious actor often results in a better understanding of an environment than the defenders who own and operate it.  At the heart of the problem lies one simple truth: know thyself.

Most security practitioners have heard about threat hunting, some have engaged external consultants to perform a threat hunting campaign, and a small number of forward-leaning organizations have begun to add threat hunting to their programs as a core discipline.

In this session you will learn how to strengthen your security risk management capabilities through proactive threat hunting for the real world.  We will discuss people, process, technology, and techniques needed to regain visibility, uncover & eradicate existing threats, and transform blind spots into your most valuable source of security information.
