Security Analytics And

threat hunting

Zoom Webinar | Thursday, August 13, 2020 | 11:00AM-11:45AM ET

A large part of your attack surface is human—both in targeting and vulnerability. Understanding it better is crucial to countering most threat actors. Reformulating security analytics in organizational terms (people/departments/regions) is extremely valuable in understanding where attackers might strike next and communicating risk across the organization and to non-technical leadership.

By using Active Directory enrichment of targeted users in Proofpoint's TAP dashboard, security teams can get a high contrast view of which departments and titles are targeted most within their organizations. This kind of intelligence is more suited to a threat landscape where people are preferred more than infrastructure as the main threat delivery vector.

Join us to learn more about gaining this critical perspective that can allow you to:

  • Determine your ‘status quo’ and look for trends/changes that reflect a new paradigm in attacker strategy or threat landscape shift
  • Prioritize efforts on what the attackers are actually doing
  • Communicate cyber security and potential impact in business terms that executives can understand
  • Identify which users represent the majority of risk facing your organization
