Stories from the SOC: Threat hunting a Citrix vulnerability

Presented by

Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect & Josh Davies, Solution Engineer

About this talk

This webinar focuses on Alert Logic’s manual threat hunting activities using the example of a Citrix RCE vulnerability (CVE-2019-19781) which, at the time, was an emerging threat with no proof of concept (PoC), indicators of compromise (IoC) or indicators of attack (IoA) publicly available. We’ll discuss how our Threat Researchers and SOC analysts worked together to identify these new exploits, and how we were able to then identify and notify the rest of our customer base who displayed similar signs of vulnerability, before being targeted. A Security Operations Center (SOC) provides proactive threat monitoring, threat detection, and advice to stop threats quickly. But you may be surprised at what goes on behind the scenes to keep you safe. Our SOC analysts monitor for malicious activity 24/7 to separate the needles you need to care about from the rest of the stack of needles. With cybersecurity experts watching over your business, you have the freedom to focus on what’s important —developing innovative solutions and growing your business. You’ll hear: • Real-world experiences and techniques used to defend against attempted attacks and breaches • Strategies to help you proactively identify and address high risk areas • The critical role a SOC plays in a 24/7 defensive cybersecurity strategy
