You’re Ready for Threat Hunting
Threat hunting is one of the next logical steps in your cybersecurity program. In its simplest form, you are searching the network for external threats or intrusions that went undetected by automated security systems. It is a very scalable exercise and can be done with varying degrees of automation, including none at all.
It can not only further protect your proprietary recipes and information, but it also has great potential for improving operational efficiencies as well. While this practice isn’t entirely new to the IT space, it is making its way into OT environments. And this is where beverage and food production or life sciences operations can benefit the most.
Threat hunting is proactive, and takes a step back from the scanning tools, traps and future-focused infrastructure already in place. In an age of technology, it uses gray matter to uncover malicious activity and infiltrations that have been hiding in your network for months, maybe years. And further, it can find correlations not otherwise detectable between network activity and production inefficiencies.
