Cyber Threat Intelligence and the EU

CTI, What? – data & metrics …. Threat Intelligence means gaining knowledge from observables of a given set of circumstances to make informed decisions on cyber risk. In CTI, data is gathered using a mix of evidence-based sources of information including data on security threats, vulnerabilities, attack methods, and applying this to situational awareness, such as knowledge of networks and systems.

CTI, Why? – prevention…. It is established that a single cyber security solution is no longer enough protection against the current landscape of sophisticated threats which are increasing year-on-year. Good CTI provides a proactive alternative to traditional, and out-dated, cyber security technologies giving preventative control over what type of observational data is gathered according to the context and scenario, be it for large organisations, SME’s or stakeholders in general. Appreciation and use of CTI as a valuable asset is increasing, in response to the growth in cyber-attacks and a need for attack and breach prevention.

CTI, the market? – EU can share this…… The cybersecurity market reached $75 Billion globally in 2015 and is expected to reach $170 Billion By 2020[1] The CTI market alone in Europe is estimated to be worth $3.83 Billion in 2017 rising to $8.94 Billion by 2022[2]

What is the current EU response to the need for CTI, and the rapidly expanding market? Mapping the threats, initiatives, examples and direction.
