About this talk

Do you know how to build an effective threat hunting program in your AWS environment? In this webinar, you will learn how threat hunting differs from alerts and SOC monitoring, and what threats to look for. You will also discover real-life examples that demonstrate how threat hunters can apply cloud infrastructure best practices to reduce the noise in often chaotic environments, making it easier to detect potential events. Leveraging detailed use cases, this webinar can help you develop an effective threat hunting program. Attendees will learn to: - Use the threat hunting loop to identify what to look for, which tools you need to analyze available data, and ways to tease out patterns that indicate potential events - Strike the right balance of how much data to capture, identify gaps in information, and determine how best to collect that information - Analyze logs efficiently and effectively using Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, and Amazon GuardDuty - Automate the process of evaluating and enriching complex data sets by utilizing SIEM and SOAR solutions to detect possible threats Speaker Bios Shaun McCullough is a community instructor for the SEC545 Cloud Security Architecture and Operations class and gives back to his profession by mentoring and supporting the next generation of cyber professionals.
