Debunking Myths of Threat Intelligence – Unfiltered Q&A with the Specialists
Cyber Threat Intelligence has been at the heart of the security architecture for a decade, and over the past five years, the concept — as evidence based knowledge, from context to mechanism, regarding threats and threat actors — and its applicability, have elicited the publication of thousands of papers and articles, with dozens, if not hundreds, of companies launching platforms and services that define security problems, analyze threats, and potentially solve them.
With that, we have also seen the emergence of threat intelligence feeds, threat intelligence platforms, investigative platforms, orchestration and automation platforms, and others. We’ve also seen the rise of buzzwords, the likes of machine learning, artificial intelligence, plug-n-play, deep and dark web, and dozens of others that are meant to grab the attention and be illustrated as, perhaps, a magic wand to solving persistent problems.
So, let’s dissect these issues and explore these topics with Jeff Bardin, a highly recognized threat intelligence specialist, whose many years of work in the public and private sectors exponentially added to many organizations’ cyber wellbeing and cyber vigilance. Jeff brings a pragmatic approach to security and threat intelligence, away from the buzzwords and away from the fluff talk.
