The New Security Frontier: Threat Hunting, Augmented Intelligence & Automated Response

Michael Melore, Cybersecurity Advisor, IBM

New methods are required to address threats increasing in frequency, sophistication, and impact in an increasing climate of cost constraints and resource and skills shortages. Traditional security controls and response can’t possibly keep pace. Private and state-sponsored dark web actors are well orchestrated, using innovative AI technologies, leveraging digital currencies—their R&D producing wares designed to circumvent traditional security practices have changed the game. You now require innovative security approaches.The art of effective threat hunting, advanced analytics, incident response, and the value of cognitive security are the new frontier. Learn how to determine threats before your fences are tested, investigate non-obvious related offenses, obtain near-real-time insight, and effectively trigger incident response as a single strategy.
