Threat Hunting Workshop by Cisco
Attendees will need their laptops
In the heat of a crisis, every keystroke counts and indecision could cost your organization millions. What separates security pros from security liabilities? A plan – and practice. Join Cisco’s Advanced Threat Solutions Team for this hands-on Threat Hunting Workshop to develop your skills and test your abilities.
In this full-day workshop, you will uncover best practices for threat hunting, learn how to incorporate threat hunting into your daily workflow, network with your peers to share strategies and techniques, and execute four real-world lab scenarios:
1. Hunt and Contain
A new threat is making headlines and your executives want complete answers fast. You need to know if it is inside your organization and how to contain it.
2. Catch the Phish
You have evidence that a remote user was phished. Follow the attack from entry to execution.
3. Event Overload
Hundreds of events are clamoring for your attention, but you have a plan to prioritize and execute a response.
4. Screenshot Holds the Clue
There’s not much to go on – just a single screenshot – but that’s all you need to trace the attack back to the entry point.

Why Should I Care About Patching?
Security threats continue to make headlines across the globe. The surprising fact is that many of these threats are exploiting vulnerabilities that have patches that are released but were not applied. This workshop will allow participants to use vulnerability management tools to scan systems for potential security holes and then use industry standard tools to address the threats through automation.
