First Steps in Cyber Threat Intelligence

Many look at Cyber Threat Intelligence as the ultimate solution, the true and only silver bullet that will protect the organization from all kinds of cyber threats. Then comes the realization of the large investments required. Very few professionals realize what can be achieved with free and open-source solutions, often to a level that closely compete with commercial solutions. In this talk, the author will outline the options available to organizations when developing a cyber threat intelligence capability, along with best practice to follow and requirements to be met.

The author will begin by providing an overview of CTI development process and he will then present a number of tools and resources that can readily provide cyber threat intelligence to the organization. The talk will conclude with recommendations for choosing the right CTI providers, solutions and technologies to match the organization’s requirements and risk appetite.
