Global Cyber Resilience Think Tank Concludes Actionable Threat Intelligence is a Priority
Mimecast Releases Latest Report from Cyber Resilience Think Tank
If threat intelligence isn’t built into an organization’s comprehensive cyber resilience strategy, the organization could be vulnerable to phishing attacks, malware incidents or worse. The Cyber Resilience Think Tank recently met to discuss threat intelligence and why it’s a must-have, and obtainable, security asset for organizations of all sizes - regardless of budget.
The report provides key insights from the group on how to avoid data exhaust; how businesses can use information they already have in-house, like previous data breach and vulnerability reports; and what’s absolutely critical when it comes to implementing this critical security capability. Additional themes throughout the report include:
- How threat intelligence is not just for the one-percent;
- How to use open APIs and known threat patterns;
- How to prove value with little (or no) budget; and
- Why most threat intelligence is outsourced – and why it is OK.
Maurice Stebilia, CISO at HARMAN and Cyber Resilience Think Tank member, said, “I have various cybersecurity partners collecting intelligence on my behalf. All of their tools I have protecting the cloud, the network, the endpoint—they’ve taken those feeds and built them into their products so if there’s a vulnerability, it’s going to be blocked and captured. And I’ll get an alert.”
The Cyber Resilience Think Tank meets quarterly to provide valuable insights from their own experiences for security practitioners and their teams. Download the Threat Intelligence: Far-fetched Idea or Must-have Security Tactic report here.
