Cybersecurity is one of the great challenges of our time. In fact, it seems that data breaches are not only risks that high profile companies must manage, but inevitable events that every individual and organization, large or small, can expect to happen at some point in its online life. According to industry-leading expert, Seth Misenar, this jarring realization calls for a paradigm shift in cybersecurity strategy, from prevention to detection and response. He explains ideas like design for fail, impact focused detection, and adversary informed hunting.

Seth Misenar is a Cyber Security Expert who serves as a Senior Instructor with the SANS Institute and Principal Consultant at Context Security, LLC. He is numbered among the few security experts worldwide to have achieved the GIAC GSE (#28) credential. Seth teaches a variety of cyber security courses for the SANS Institute including two very popular courses for which he is lead author: the bestselling SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations and SEC542: Web Application Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking.
