Threat Intelligence: Knowledge is Power

Today’s cyber threat actors are unwaveringly focused on the theft of intellectual property, mission-critical details, and other sensitive information. They continually evolve their methods and routinely defeat traditional approaches to defense. As organizations work to thwart the attackers, they find themselves in an escalating arms race with unseen attackers. To combat the advanced, persistent and constantly morphing threats, organizations need the very best security intelligence delivered immediately.

The introduction of a threat intelligence team that sits along side the security operations group is gaining popularity. Strategies to obtain funding include presenting the facts from a business perspective and tying security efforts to the ability to detect, prevent and deter fraud.   

To drive threat intelligence, security executives are increasingly working to understand their network, looking for patterns on the network and increasing deep packet inspection activities.
