What is Threat Intelligence and How It Helps to Identify Security Threats
Threat intelligence is information that helps you recognize security threats and make conversant decisions. Threat intelligence can help you solve the following problems:
How do I keep up to date on the overwhelming amount of info on security extortions…including bad actors, methods, susceptibilities, targets, etc.?
How do I get more preemptive about imminent security threats?
How do I notify my leaders about the risks and consequences of specific security threats?
Threat Intelligence: What is it?
Threat intelligence services provide organizations with current information related to possible attack sources pertinent to their industries; some also offer consultation service.
Threat intelligence has received a lot of attention recently. While there are many diverse definitions, here are a few that get quoted often:
Threat intelligence is evidence-based knowledge, including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to assets that can be used to inform decisions regarding the subject’s response to that menace or peril. — Gartner
Why is everyone talking about it?
Verizon’s 2015 DBIR estimated a financial loss of $400 million from 700 million compromised records, which caused from 79,790 security incidents!
As long as security threats and fissures ensue, every business will look for ways to protect their data. The threat landscape is always changing, and the business risk is increasing because of our dependence on IT systems.
Threat Intelligence capabilities
Attacks can be broadly characterized as user based, application based and infrastructure based threats. Some of the most common risks are SQL injections, DDoS, web application attacks and phishing.
It is essential to have an IT security solution that provides threat intelligence capabilities to manage these attacks by being both proactive and responsive.
Attackers are constantly changing their methods to challenge security systems. Therefore, it becomes inevitable for organizations to get threat intelligence from a variety of sources.
One of the proven methods to stay on top of attacks is to detect and respond to threats with a SIEM (Security Information & Event Management system).
