The popularity of threat hunting as a form of proactive and reactive security has grown over the past few years. Threat hunting “is a focused and iterative approach to searching out, identifying and understanding adversaries that have entered the defender’s networks” (Lee & Lee, 2017). While threat hunting continues to grow as an emerging trend, the corpus of knowledge remains sparse. To date, studies into threat hunting methodology have focused on the definition of hunting, the maturity of data collection programs, and specific approaches for hunting.
