In traditional cybersecurity strategies, threat hunting is executed through a large amount of information sources that exist within the organization such as logs of IT and security systems. This effort is designed to uncover any intrusion and reduce dwell time (time between a threat staying latent in your environment before discovery and eradication).
A better solution would be to prevent the cyber intruder and adversary from getting into your environment in the first place. This requires an ‘outside-in’ approach where knowing where to look makes all the difference.
DECODE THREAT SIGNALS
DeCYFIR’s threat hunting is a proactive and iterative process where automated agents are deployed into the deep and dark webs, hackers’ forums, closed communities and other sources to discover threats to your organization. Information gathered is filtered to ensure it is relevant to your organization before being analysed to decode the threat signals.
DeCYFIR correlates the data gathered to uncover who is the cyber intruder, what does he want, why is he interested in your organization, when is he planning an attack and how is the attack likely to unfold.
The result is a set of cyber intelligence with relevant insights where you can quickly take action to prevent cyber intrusion.
ALWAYS LEAD WITH ‘OUTSIDE-IN’ APPROACH
With the understanding that looking inwards alone does not adequately address the more important questions around threat actor, motive and campaign, it is essential that threat hunting must take place outside your environment.
Stay ahead of the game and thwart any cyberattack with predictive intelligence. This is key to protecting your organization’s data, assets and brand.
