According to this year’s SANS Threat Hunting Survey, threat hunting resourcing is an “ever-growing staffing nightmare.” 73% of this year’s respondents claimed that their biggest challenge is finding skilled staff. This is a 7% increase over 2022, and a whopping 43% increase over 2021.
This talent drought is compounded by the following factors:
- All eyes are on the hunters with 78% of senior leadership aware of or directly engaged in threat hunting.
- The use of “homegrown tools,” which require tribal knowledge and human resources to maintain them, increased this year.
