THREAT OPERATIONS AND MANAGEMENTFor Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI)
PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS, EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS IS GETTING MORE COMPLEX, NOT LESS
Advances in networking and communications are improving the way you do business. Information is moving faster than ever and cyber criminals are creating new threats faster than you can respond. A different approach is needed to protect your business, employees and customers.
ACCELERATE DETECTION AND RESPONSE
The combination of external and internal threat data provides context and relevance, enabling situational understanding, better decision making and automated actions.
TRANSFORM DATA INTO INTELLIGENCE
To begin the transition to an intelligence-driven architecture, large amounts of unmanageable threat data must be contextualized, answering questions like: Who, What, Where, When, How and Why?
Managing context is a key first step to evolve your security posture from one that is reactive and defensive, based solely on internal data and alerts, to one that is proactive when augmented with external intelligence. In order to begin the process, data must be organized into actionable information about the adversaries, the indicators of compromise that identify them, their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), and the events that occur external and internal to your network.
TAILOR INTELLIGENCE TO YOUR SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENT
Not all intelligence is created equal. Given vast amounts of contextualized threat data from internal and external sources, the challenge is to make sure that it is accurate (A), relevant (R) to your business, and timely (T) enough to take meaningful action upon it. The A.R.T. of threat intelligence is to balance these three attributes to best match the needs of your specific environment, by combining automation with expert human analysis.
OPERATIONALIZE CYBER THREAT INTELLIGENCE ACROSS YOUR ORGANIZATION
The most important part of your threat intelligence and operations management framework is the tool that brings it all together. That platform must be able to help you acquire, aggregate, analyze and act upon the most relevant threats facing your organization. Threat operations is achieved when you have the ability to rapidly bring together internal threat data, event data and alerts with external adversary information to provide context and relevance that strengthens the configuration and policies of your security infrastructure.
