Workshop: Modern threat hunting

Led by Vicente Diaz (VirusTotal); hosted by VirusTotal
Threat Hunting is one of the most popular techniques used by security analysts for all kinds of investigations. It is both science and, to some degree, inspiration. However, in recent years the security industry has developed new tools and techniques that can dramatically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our threat hunting. In particular, similarity and automatic Yara generation are key when dealing with large amounts of data.

Join this workshop with VirusTotal to go through the process of threat hunting and explore new techniques available for analysts to step-up to the next level.
