Breakfast Session; "Network Threat Hunting – Techniques For Finding Advanced Threat Actors and Anomalies In Your Environment", with Max Heinemeyer, Director of Threat Hunting, Darktrace

Network Threat Hunting – Techniques For Finding Advanced Threat Actors and Anomalies In Your Environment

Network data, especially Netflow-eque data, provides a rich source of information to identify malicious behaviour. Processed in the right ways, it enables threat hunts on the network. This talk will explore generic techniques used for threat hunting on network data such as: How to collect the right data, using machine learning to create a baseline of activity, detecting unusual activity on a network, identifying beaconing behaviour and how to visualize and operationalize network data for security operations. We will also explore how behavioural anomaly detection fits into security stacks that have a mature team & tooling in place. The talk will provide real-life examples of threats identified and investigated using only network data.
