Cyber attacks can come in a variety of forms from breaches that target valuable information assets to ransomware attacks that interrupt service in an attempt to extort money. Organizations with valuable data place a high priority on preventing and taking countermeasures against these attacks.
The landscape of cyber threats is crowded and rapidly evolving. Solutions to counteract cybercrime are therefore increasingly complex.
Threat intelligence is a key form of insight that helps organizations protect against cyber attacks. It is informed by data and provides essential context such as who is attacking, their motivation, their capabilities, and potential signs of compromise, so that your team can make informed security decisions. Threat intelligence empowers your operators with actionable insight due to the context, timeliness, and ease of understanding.
Using threat intelligence for your organization
Using threat intelligence tools is not just for large enterprises; it can add value for security teams of all sizes. Fraud prevention, risk analysis, and other security processes can benefit from the insight threat intelligence provides.
The information provided by threat intelligence often falls into one of three categories: strategic, tactical, or operational. Strategic threat intelligence covers broader trends in a way that is more accessible to non-technical audiences, while at the other end of the spectrum, operational threat intelligence includes all the technical details of specific attacks or campaigns. Tactical threat intelligence is also more technical, providing information about the techniques and procedures of threat actors.
The Value of Threat Intelligence Centers
The intelligence gained from numerous data sources is best pooled in a single, central location that optimizes the technology you have and streamlines security processes.
Creating a threat intelligence center defines the way you take action against cyber threats. A 24/7 monitoring space helps your team to move beyond reactive cyber security into proactive and continuous.
Visibility into the threat landscape is hugely important for your cyber security, and locating your tools and threat intelligence within one operations center helps expand your visibility and give insight into the entire picture. With visibility, proper execution, and continuing research, your organization will be well-equipped to keep cyber threats at bay and make informed decisions about triaging threats.
Cyber security and threat intelligence are not goals to achieve and then be done with — they are continuous processes. Threats are ever-evolving; your cyber security tools should be evolving right with them. Fighting cyber threats is a long-term process. It’s important to find long-term partners who can guarantee your success. For the creation of your operations center, that partner is Constant.
