The hunted becomes the hunter

“Open confrontation will trigger over-powering resistance.
Thus the key to victory is the ability to use surprise tactics.”

That’s from Sun Tzu’s infamous work, The Art of War. This book, and the military strategies contained within, have stood the test of time—having been adopted by numerous people into their jobs.

It seems cyber attackers are no exception: when faced with a major organization’s defenses, they can’t come in guns a-blazin’. The element of surprise is their main key to success. And, as evidenced by the long (and still-growing) list of victims in 2017 alone, it may as well be a skeleton key.

 “The position of victory is one of determination.
The position of defeat is unpreparedness.”

Long gone are the days when having a purely defensive-minded system in place counts as ‘preparedness.’ Only in Hollywood will you see lights flashing, alarms blaring, and security teams waging war whenever a cyber attack befalls a network.

Today, usual signs that a breach has occurred are: receiving a ransom email asking payment for the stolen data; finding said data leaked somewhere in the dark web; or any other equally humiliating and damaging scenario. What’s worse, there are times when attackers succeed in flying under the radar, leaving no trace at all of their intrusion.

In any case, if you’re not in a position to seek out threats, you’re in a position of defeat.

THP helps professionals bring the fight to cyber attackers

Threat Hunting Professional aims to help security professionals gain a proactive defense mentality. The course also teaches students how to:

  • Proactively hunt for threats in your organization’s network or perimeter
  • Use threat intelligence or hypotheses to hunt for known threats
  • Comfortably inspect network traffic and identify malicious traffic
  • Perform memory analysis using Redline and Volatility to identify malware
  • Use tools such as Sysmon and ELK to analyze Windows events and detect attack patterns
  • Use tools such as PowerShell, Microsoft ATP, and ATA to detect attacks

Although primarily aimed to become the Blue Team’s weapon of choice, THP can also prove to be an extra bullet in the chamber for Red Teams, as they can use the techniques covered in the course to:

  • Get familiar with detection techniques used by mature organizations
  • Identify how an attack looks like in the wire and in memory
  • Identify the most common events that are analyzed
  • Fine tune your attack strategy, attack vectors, and infrastructure

And that’s barely even scraping the surface of what’s in the course. Coupled with a vast array of training materials and a number of real-world Hera Lab scenarios, Threat Hunting Professional delivers the robust eLearnSecurity training experience.
