Cyber threat hunting is vital to robust network, endpoint, and dataset security strategies because cybercriminals are becoming more knowledgeable than ever. Advanced external attackers or insider threats could remain undetected for months if they can elude initial network defense systems. During this time, they could assemble sensitive data, compromise confidential information, or secure login credentials enabling them to sneak across your networking environment laterally.
This report provides a summary of the threat hunting insights of every month. It reviews intrusion details and provides insights into current adversary tactics and a link for each vulnerability to provide detailed information.
Our research reveals:
- Hunting for outside attackers or insider threats: Cyber threat hunters can detect and exploit threats posed by insiders, like an employee in the organization, or outsiders, like a cybercriminal.
- Proactively hunting for known adversaries: List of the known attacker in threat intelligence services or whose code pattern is on the deny list of general malicious programs.
- Searching for hidden threats to prevent attacks: Threat hunters analyze the computing environment using constant monitoring. They can specify anomalies that could indicate a threat/unusual activities using behavioral analysis.
- Executing the incident response plan: When hunters detect a threat/unusual activities, they gather as much information as possible to neutralize it before performing the incident response plan.
