Cyber threat intelligence is the range of data and information available within your organisation about past, current and potential cyberattacks on your business. The process involves building a detailed and documented understanding of cyber threats and the motives, tactics, and procedures used by malicious actors. This knowledge is what helps you create robust security defenses, and appropriate incident response.
We put together a compilation of:
Given several major data breaches in recent times, Australian businesses are highly vulnerable to cyber threats. And an insight into where the next attack might come from is crucial to improve information security practices. With StickmanCyber, you get actionable threat intelligence — it’s timely, provides context, and is understood by the people in charge of making decisions, making it an important part of your organisation’s cybersecurity strategy.
There are three key types of threat intelligence:
Aimed at identifying simple indicators of compromise (IOCs) like malicious IP addresses, URLs or domain names. It is machine-readable and typically automated through various security software and tools. However, it’s important to note that tactical intelligence is actionable for a few hours or days at best because cyber criminals are continuously changing their tools and methods.
Refers to the collection of knowledge about cyberattacks, events, or campaigns. It helps incident response teams understand the nature, intent, and timing of specific attacks. Unlike tactical intelligence, machines alone cannot collect operational intelligence and human personnel are required to analyse raw data and convert it into a format that is easy to understand and use.
Documents how events on a global scale - foreign policies, and other long-term movements - can potentially impact the cybersecurity of an organisation. Strategic intelligence provides clarity to an organisation’s threat landscape and is intended to inform high-level decisions made by executives and other decision-makers at an organisation. It is generally less technical and presented through reports or briefings.
The different types of threat intelligence combined create an information repository that empowers several different stakeholders:
