Evolving the Hunt
When attackers fail to achieve their target, they simply regroup and try again with a different approach. They are constantly developing their tradecraft and tightening their feedback loop—and there’s no reason why us defenders can’t do the same. The cyber hunt has evolved drastically, and preventive security just doesn’t cut it anymore. We need the ability to absorb vast amounts of threat research, quickly distill and identify new key challenges, and swiftly deploy new solutions. In this session, we’ll dive into how attackers quickly adapt their tactics based on change and what defenders need to do to accelerate their own evolution.
