Threat Intelligence: Separating the Signal from the Noise
The best form of defense against cyber attacks and those who perpetrate them is to know about them. Collaborative defense has become critical to IT security, and sharing threat intelligence is a force multiplier. But for many organizations, good quality intelligence is hard to come by.
Commercial threat intelligence technology and services can help enterprises arm themselves with the strategic, tactical and operational insights they need to identify and respond to global threat activity, and integrate intelligence into their security programs.
Threat intelligence sources have varying levels of relevance and context, and there are concerns about data quality and redundancy, shelf life, public/private data sharing, and threat intelligence standards. However, if processed and applied properly, threat intelligence provides a way for organizations to get the insight they need into attackers’ plans, prioritize and respond to threats, shorten the time between attack and detection, and focus staff efforts and decision-making.
