Threat detection refers to the identification and monitoring of activities or occurrences that could potentially harm an organization, its assets, or individuals. In the context of cybersecurity, threat detection aims to spot unusual patterns, anomalies, or behaviors in networks and systems that may indicate malicious intent, such as unauthorized access, malware infections, or data breaches. Various tools and techniques are employed for this purpose, including intrusion detection systems, antivirus software, and real-time monitoring solutions. Once a potential threat is detected, it is analyzed to assess its severity and potential impact, often triggering alerts or automated responses to neutralize or mitigate the risk. The field of threat detection is continuously evolving to keep up with increasingly sophisticated methods employed by attackers, necessitating a layered, multi-faceted approach that combines technology, human expertise, and up-to-date threat intelligence. Effective threat detection is a critical component of a comprehensive security strategy, aimed at safeguarding digital and physical assets.
