Threat Hunting Academy Launches Resource Site for Cybersecurity Community

Boston, June 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Threat Hunting Academy is designed to give practitioners an opportunity to share their lessons from the field with anyone looking to learn more about how to actively hunt down network intruders. This site is being sponsored by Sqrrl.

It features hours of lecture content and interviews with leading industry experts, and is also home to a resource library that contains everything from video tutorials on specific hunting techniques to best practices whitepapers. The Threat Hunting Academy covers crucial topics ranging from how to spot the latest adversary tactics to what it’s like to lead a threat hunting team within a modern security operations center.

Instead of having to scour the internet for threat hunting resources, analysts can find everything they need to hone their threat hunting skills at the Threat Hunting Academy.

The goal is to see threat hunting expertise spread across organizations of all sizes. “There are a lot of people who want to get started hunting for evil in their network, but don't know where to start. What should they hunt for? How do they perform the hunts? What data do they need to collect?” says Dr. Eric Cole. “On the other hand, there are a lot of individuals ou there who have written blog posts or made conference presentations that detail some of their favorite hunting tips. The problem is that they are scattered, and it’s sometimes hard to find what you need.”

The Academy's main draw is a number of on-demand e-courses, including a “Threat Hunting Essentials” course taught by renowned infosec instructor Dr. Eric Cole. In his lecture, Dr. Cole emphasizes the importance and timeliness of the Academy’s mission: “Threat hunting is one of my favorite topics, and the reason is because I’m tired of the adversary having the upper hand. It seems like adversaries can break into organizations, do anything they want, and go completely and totally undetected, and that frustrates me” said Dr. Cole. “We need to get more proactive. We need to recognize that our environments are broken into and aggressively and actively look for that adversary.”

Visit now to take your the “Threat Hunting Essentials” eCourse, or listen to the interviews with experienced hunters such as Alan Orlikoski, Jason Smith, and Ryan Nolette.
