The evolving challenges associated with responding to contemporary cyberthreats, particularly in these times of remote work and tightening budgets, is forcing organizations and security teams to reimagine their security measures and reconsider their strategies. The most recent SANS Threat Hunting Survey highlighted the diverse range of skills and activities of today's threat hunters, as well as perspectives on what it takes to stand up a dedicated Threat Hunting team. In this session, we'll discuss:
• How is the role of Threat Hunter evolving, from managing SOC alerts to hypothesis-driven hunting?
• What are the skills and methodologies required to become a successful Threat Hunter?
• How has MITRE ATT&CK impacted the threat hunting process?
• How do security practitioners pivot their careers to become high value Threat Hunters
