WHAT IS THREAT HUNTING?

Cyber Threat Hunting is the process of proactively searching through networks to detect and isolate advanced threats that have infiltrated your networks by evading existing security solutions. Unlike traditional threat management measures, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), malware sandbox (computer security) and SIEM systems, which typically involve an investigation after there has been a warning of a potential threat or an incident has occurred – Threat Hunters actively hunt for undetected threats that may have penetrated your systems.

Threat hunting technology and processes can work with existing security infrastructure to deny attackers the ability to persist undetected. Once discovered, these threats can be quarantined and eliminated before they cause any harm, or, if the damage has already begun, the scope of the event can be limited and contained.

CYBERCRIME HAS GONE PRO

Attackers are evolving on a daily basis.
Today’s cyber criminals launch highly targeted attacks to gain valid credentials and become ‘insiders’ within your network. Once inside, they can use built-in tools and executables to accomplish their attacks, or even just sit, wait and bide their time collecting information and in some cases taking control of back up systems and internal functions.

NEWSWORTHY BREACHES

NO ORGANIZATION IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL, TO BECOME THE TARGET OF A CYBER ATTACK.

Organizations rely upon their IT systems to deliver and support on their daily business operations. IT systems contain risks and introduce threats that can have a material impact on operations and assets if exploited.

Cybersecurity threats can include, but are not limited to: 

INTRUSION DETECTION &
threat hunting Engagement

Managed security service providers (MSSPs) generate alerts of cyber attacks, investigates and takes proactive action to mitigate and contain threats. Endpoint Sensors are deployed to allow threat hunters to collect data and perform forensic analysis to determine the overall health of the endpoint and confirm whether it is malware free. 

Threat hunting assessment enables an organization to quickly and efficiently determine if any of their corporate servers and desktops have an adversarial presence on them.

REDUCING RISK

Processes vary by cybersecurity agency but to effectively “hunt” a network should begin with the examination 100% of IT endpoints (desktops, laptops, servers), including:

  • Interrogating endpoints for signs of compromise and other suspicious code
  • Checking for the presence of persistence mechanisms used to maintain system  access across reboots
  • Examining volatile memory for signs of manipulation and/or hidden processes
  • Identification of disabled security controls such as Anti-Virus and Windows Defender
  • Verification that critical operating system files are unaltered
  • Identification of unauthorized remote access tools
  • A comprehensive report that enables the organization to take decisive action
