SANS Threat Hunting and Incident Response Summit 2018 Call for Speakers – Deadline 3/5

The Threat Hunting & Incident Response Summit will focus on specific hunting and incident response techniques and capabilities that can be used to identify, contain, and eliminate adversaries targeting your networks. SANS and our advisory partner Carbon Black are pleased to invite you to the Summit where you will have the opportunity to directly learn from and collaborate with incident response and detection experts who are uncovering and stopping the most recent, sophisticated, and dangerous attacks against organizations.

Chances are very high that hidden threats already exist inside your organization’s networks. Organizations can’t afford to assume that their security measures are impenetrable, no matter how thorough their security precautions might be. Prevention systems alone are insufficient to counter focused human adversaries who know how to get around most security and monitoring tools.

The key is to constantly look for attacks that get past security systems, and to catch intrusions in progress rather than after attackers have attained their objectives and done worse damage to the organization. For the incident responder, this process is known as “threat hunting.” Threat hunting uses known adversary behaviors to proactively examine the network and endpoints and identify new data breaches.
