As leaders, we've been told that to Do Security in the 20s, we have to have the capacity to "Threat Hunt". As individual contributors, we've been told that traditional SOC analysts are on the way out, to be replaced by mystical "threat hunters". So, what is threat hunting, really? How can you do it in your environment today, what value does it bring, and what people and technologies does it require? How do you build a threat hunting program with a big budget, or a tiny one? What skills do you need to grow to be great at threat hunting? These questions and more will be tackled as we discuss why we need to threat hunt and what it practically can and cannot do.
