Solving Threat Detection

Why do organisations fail so badly at threat detection? Despite chucking tons of cash at staff and magic next-gen ML products, detection teams rarely deliver reliable, high quality, tangible results. Where are we going so wrong?

This talk will step through key issues such as re-inventing the wheel syndrome, why information accumulation/sharing matters, the traditional SOC model and detection priorities, building/retaining awesome employees and an honest look at the state of detection tooling (and often underestimated deployment hurdles).

Although perhaps surprising, many issues actually have simple solutions which will be discussed through-out the talk. Technical examples will be used to quantify the challenges and how solutions can work in the real world, with lessons learnt coming straight from the experiences of the Countercept hunt team.
