Main Presentation


 Topic: How to Succeed at Threat Hunting & IR: Think Differently about Data

Speaker: Pete Anderson


Two pillars of a successful and proactive SOC are threat hunting and incident response. The use of network detection and response can help improve performance in these two areas, if you can trust the data. This session will explain how attackers can hide and misuse logs, agents, and standard security tools, and demonstrate effective approaches for countering their actions using network detection, passive monitoring, and real-time forensic data.
