Presentation information

Workshop: Modern threat hunting

Vicente Diaz (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.

In this workshop we will go through the process of threat hunting and showcase how to leverage new techniques available for analysts to step our research up to the next level.

This workshop will be hosted by VirusTotal. Details of how to join the workshop will be provided before and during VB2021.
