Why is Threat Detection Hard?

Anton on Security

While creating a recent presentation, I needed a slide on “threat detection is hard.” And it got me thinking, why is threat detection so hard for so many organizations today? This means we are “celebrating” ~35 years of cyber threat detection.

Role of Context in Threat Detection

Anton on Security

The debate focused on the role of context in threat detection. Specifically, it is about the role of local context (environment knowledge, organization context, site details, etc) in threat detection. Can threat detection work well without such local context? and will point at “ success ” (well, let’s not get into a fight over this) of anti-malware technology. Anomalies detected need local context to mean something.
