Threat Intelligence – Common Mistakes & Stories Form The Field

With the appearance of the first APT group in early 2013, cyber threat intelligence function has started to be adopted at large scale by organisations and soon it became a default component in most SOC setups. This doesn’t necessarily mean that standards and best practices are being applied and followed or that technology enablement reached its most advanced stages. In the meantime we are still discovering uncharted territories. 

Thus, the aim of the presentation is to provide quick solutions for common threat intelligence stereotypes and mistakes encountered in immature threat intelligence processes or programs.
