What is threat hunting?

Why threat hunting?

We need to conduct these threat hunting activities regularly to uncover the possible security threats to our information system. Because there can be zero-day vulnerabilities also. After we have discovered any kind of threat, we need to inform them to the liable authorities who can take action and mitigate them. By following this procedure we can secure our information system and it is an important step for information security.
