Think of threat intelligence as the data that helps to inform the decisions in managing the risk a business is willing to take. Organizations can create their own threat intelligence feeds or purchase a feed specific to their vertical market or geographic location.
Keep in mind that the raw data received from threat intelligence is significant in size, and the noise-to-frequency ratio is something that needs fine-tuning over time. Automating threat intelligence helps reduce human error, increases fidelity through pattern matching, and delivers results more quickly. Using automated threat intelligence means the right stakeholders can receive relevant and actionable information more quickly.
Overall, threat intelligence helps organizations:
- Reduce costs associated with the impact of a breach
- Reduce the risk of a cyber incident to steal data and disrupt business operations
- Increase collaboration and cross-functional work of the IT, development, security, and lines of business teams
With the increase and determination of cyber adversaries, organizations are trying to become more resilient. Part of that resiliency includes having a cybersecurity team that is efficient, effective, and proactive. Threat intelligence is a smart way to understand what is going on inside your network, applications, and systems to help stay ahead of adversaries and deliver on the goal of a resilient enterprise.
OSINT is the corner stones of threat intelligence.
