The Shadows of Ghosts: Threat Hunting and Incident Response Methodology and Application

Wes Riley, of RSA's Global Incident Response Team, discusses the Threat Hunting and Incident Response methodology used by RSA to detect and engage threats of every level of sophistication. The methodology presented in this talk enables analysts to more effectively apply behavioral intelligence to their current tools, identify critical gaps in visibility, discover and map key indicators of any present threat actor, and effectively and rapidly determine the best response to attacker activity. The methodology will be presented as it has been applied in the field and illustrated with actual incident data from multiple recent Carbanak intrusions.

Presenter: Jack “Wes” Riley, Principal Incident Response Consultant, RSA
