Have you ever played hide and seek? If you have, you may already understand how it relates to cybersecurity threat hunting. For those who haven't heard of the game, the object requires at least two people, where one individual finds a hiding place and the other attempts to find him.
The person tasked with seeking out the other individuals typically counts to 30, giving the individual(s) hiding a chance to run, hide, and attempt to remain undetected. It is a game of persistence, visual and audible acuity, and methodical review of previous known hiding places.
