Proactive Businesses Understand the Importance of Threat Hunting in Cyber Security
Thursday, June 20, 2024

NYC area cyber security expert discusses the importance of threat hunting in cyber security as companies navigate an increasingly dangerous digital world--in a new article from eMazzanti Technologies

HOBOKEN, N.J., June 12, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A new article by NYC area cyber security expert eMazzanti Technologies warns organizations of the critical need to update cyber security methods to address rapidly evolving cyber threats.

Companies need to move away from reactive security and take a more proactive approach. Like the hunter tracking her prey, threat hunting relies on human expertise to identify the subtle, unusual patterns that may indicate a compromise.

The author first outlines challenges that face companies when they take a reactive approach to cyber security.

She then gives an overview of the process and benefits of threat hunting, a security strategy that combines human ingenuity with advanced analytics and the right tools.

"Companies need to move away from reactive security and take a more proactive approach. Like the hunter tracking her prey, threat hunting relies on human expertise to identify the subtle, unusual patterns that may indicate a compromise," emphasized Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies.

Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Proactive Businesses Understand the Importance of Threat Hunting in Cyber Security."

Challenges to Traditional Cyber Security Approaches

"Traditional cyber security strategies tend to rely on established security measures such as antivirus software, firewalls, and intrusion detection. These tools, while essential, operate on the principle of signature-based detection. That is, they identify threats based on known patterns, or signatures, of malicious software."

"As a result, traditional security measures may miss more sophisticated threats. These include Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) that spread unnoticed through the target network. They also include zero-day attacks that exploit vulnerabilities that the vendor does not know about and has not addressed."

Importance of Threat Hunting in Cyber Security Understood, But How Does It Work?

"Threat hunting assumes that breaches have already occurred somewhere in the network. Using a combination of manual and automated techniques, human threat hunters sift through large amounts of data looking for patterns that may indicate a breach."

Human Expertise Combined with the Right Tools

"Sophisticated technologies support human expertise. These include a variety of tools such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions that collect, analyze, and correlate security data from various sources in real time. Data analytics platforms will help in processing large datasets."

Incorporating Threat Hunting into Small Business Cyber Security Strategies

For small businesses with limited resources, implementation of threat hunting can seem daunting. However, with the right strategies, even smaller companies can integrate threat hunting into their cyber security program. Consider outsourcing threat hunting to a cyber security provider such as eMazzanti that offers scalable services tailored to the needs and budgets of small businesses.
