Infocyte will be presenting a session at the joint (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter and the Association of Information Security Professionals (AiSP) event in February.
Session Title: Introduction to Threat Hunting
Malware attacks have become a constant occurrence and constitute an ongoing real and present danger to enterprises everywhere – resulting in millions in financial losses, theft of intellectual property and exposure of customer information. While organizations continue to invest in standard defensive capabilities, a reliance on only these solutions creates a false sense of security. What is required is the ability to recognize threats and hunt down malware that regularly breaches the typical defensive architectures.
This session will cover:
- The current malware reality
- How threat hunting fits into organizational security
- The 4 key principles required to manage the Breach Detection Gap
- Forensic vs. EDR approaches
- Current hunt trends and forecast for the future
