Definition: Threat hunting is the practice of detecting cyber threats lurking in the digit networks. Suppose you have heard of companies’ data being breached for not discovering the attackers’ position. In that case, threat hunting can be the process they require to identify those security incidents before the breach occurs.
To be successful with threat hunting, cybersecurity teams must be equipped with the right technical knowledge and toolsets to detect different types of malicious cyber threats ranging from malware and phishing to zero-day exploits and man-in-the-middle attacks.
