What Cybersecurity Experts Get Wrong
When it comes to using a cybersecurity product, relying on new technology has often been seen as the primary objective. What cyber security experts are starting to realise, however, is that technology by itself has limitations; the perfect combination actually comes from having good technology and skilled professionals who know how to use it. Many security technologies rely on an alert basis; a method that notifies professionals to investigate problems as and when they appear. The problem with this is that, according to Arctic Wolf, 44% of security alerts are actually not investigated.
What cyber security solutions do I need to know about?
Threat hunting is, as our guest today points out, the method of "proactively identifying malicious activities or security concerns within an organisation." This means that malicious activities could have previously been detected or maybe the hunter is looking for threats before they have even made their first appearance. In fact, the method of being anticipatory when it comes to cyber security has always proved to be more effective than being reactionary.
Our guest today is Christopher Fielder, Director of Product Marketing at Arctic Wolf. Christopher takes us through the steps of incorporating threat detection in your organisation, what the fundamental misconceptions are about threat hunting and how it can save your business more than it costs.
