Cyber Threat Intelligence

“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 hazard.”

In recent times, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have presumed cybercriminals won’t consider them a viable target due to their size. This is not the case unfortunately as SMEs still provide ample incentive to lure cybercriminals to target their networks. Given the current threat landscape, the potential impact of a successful network breach at the SME level can be particularly devastating.

SMEs have become a favoured target for cybercrime mainly because many lack the budget, time and expertise to put comprehensive security defences in place.

To effectively protect the networks, SMEs need to be equipped with up-to-date, advanced threat intelligence that can help guide their cybersecurity strategies, identify key vulnerabilities and keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape.

Threat intelligence we produce will help predict probable security event based on your environment and critical data assets, allowing you to take proactive action. Organisations require timely cyber threat intelligence to compare internal security incidents with indicators of compromise and cyber adversary tactics, techniques, and procedures. With this, security analysts get an outside-in perspective for investigations.

Threat Intelligence Characteristics

  • Collects data from multiple sources such as open source and commercial data feeds, and internal and external sources.
  • Creates customized and prioritized alerts based on your organisation’s the IT infrastructure.
  • Helps in identifying initial Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) and discovering tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for possible attacks to assess the possibility of an attack.
  • Provides an ability to implement new protection strategies to prevent upcoming attacks.
  • Provides an understanding of active campaigns of emerging security threats.
  • Guides incident response and recommends various remediation and risk mitigation solutions.
  • Provides insight into the probability of risks and its impact on business.
  • Provides greater insight to the management to allocate sufficient budget to mitigate business risks

Common Threat Intelligence Use Cases

  • Threat intelligence helps SMEs identify vulnerabilities that are being actively exploited or included in exploit kits so they can prioritise their efforts accordingly.
  • Using threat intelligence, SMEs Management can strengthen their understanding of the types of threats they are expected to face and plan their security initiatives and investments accordingly.
  • Threat intelligence integrates with existing security technologies to provide SMEs with a manageable stream of alerts, bereft of time-wasting false positives, so potential threats can be swiftly identified and responded to appropriately.
  • Threat intelligence provides SMEs with the indicators of compromise (IOCs) they need to notice probable breaches, while helping them to identify stolen records the moment they appear for sale online. This information leads to rapid breach identification and containment, leading to drastic cost reduction.
