Qualifying the Cyber Threat
Understanding the quantitative value that cyber threats have on us can be elusive because of their intangible nature. What is more, we pay no attention to the risk from the electron or photons making up the message, which our computing systems decode. Only when the message is malicious do we feel compromised. Who are the people behind cyber attacks? Where are they from? Why did they target my organization?
The Value of Threat Intelligence
Threat Intelligence complements application and network security with constant updates of world-wide risks and vulnerabilities. Global threat collection across network and cloud systems event information is used to create threat maps. In addition to visualizing the magnitude of the threats, threat intelligence presents near real-time information about cyber-attacks as they occur. Threat maps and data feeds are collated by industry partners, in addition to Government Agencies, such as the FBI InfraGuard and DHS Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS), for threat research. One output are threat maps, which allow us to qualify, quantify and visualize the scope of the threat landscape. It helps bring clarification to the threats posed to individuals and organizations.
