Threat intelligence (TI) is the not-so-secret weapon the cybersecurity industry is using to step up its game against attacks. While it has been around for some time, only recently has threat intelligence been widely recognized. According to the SANS 2018 Cyber Threat Intelligence Survey, 81 percent of security professionals believe that investing in threat intelligence capabilities helped improve their organization’s security posture—compared to 64 percent in 2016. However, despite the rising interest, there is also a lot of debate surrounding this topic. What exactly does threat intelligence involve? What capabilities are required for an organization to claim they have a mature threat intelligence system in place? Which tools are best for providing these capabilities?
