Threat hunting

What is Threat hunting

Threat hunting is a proactive approach to cybersecurity that involves actively searching for and identifying potential security threats or anomalies that may have gone undetected by conventional security measures such as firewalls and antivirus software.

Threat hunting involves collecting and analyzing data from various sources such as network logs, endpoint devices, and cloud services to identify potential indicators of compromise (IoCs) or suspicious behavior. Once identified, threat hunters investigate further to determine the scope and severity of the threat and take appropriate measures to contain and eliminate it.

The goal of threat hunting is to identify threats before they can cause significant damage to an organization's systems or data. It is an ongoing process that requires a combination of technical expertise, data analysis skills, and a deep understanding of the organization's systems and potential vulnerabilities.
