Companies of all shapes and sizes are compromised by threat actors despite heavy investments in security products and skilled resources. Why? Because threat actors are doing their best to blend in by limiting their use of custom malware and opting instead to use our own software and applications against us. Threat Hunting appears to be a viable solution but many companies struggle justifying the cost or fail to get the desired results. Join Secureworks Senior Security Researcher Robert Higham as he shares his experiences building a Threat Hunting program at a Fortune 50 company and training dozens of companies of various sizes, markets and countries across the globe to do the same.
