The SANS Institute, a provider of information security training
and security certification
, is bringing its Threat Hunting & Incident Response Summit to New Orleans. It will focus on specific hunting and incident response techniques and capabilities that can be used to identify, contain and eliminate adversaries targeting your networks. Attendees 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.
