Cyber Threat Hunting

Cyber Threat Hunting is an active cyber defence activity. It is "the process of proactively and iteratively searching through networks to detect and isolate advanced threats that evade existing security solutions.

After sneaking in, an attacker can stealthily remain in the network for months as they silently gather data, search for confidential material, or gain login credentials with which they can move laterally across the environment.

Once the detection is evaded successfully by an adversary who penetrates the organisation's defence through persistent attacks, many enterprises lack the next generation detection capabilities needed to stop APT’s from remaining in the network. This is what makes Cyber Threat Hunting an essential component of any defence strategy.
