Mastering the Use of Cyber Threat Intelligence

Today’s secure environment will no doubt have security flaws in it tomorrow, so organisations cannot become complacent. Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is a process that enables organisations to understand the threat landscape and analyse risks. This intelligence can help organisations develop core capabilities to anticipate breaches before they occur. This session explores CTI frameworks, how organisations can gather and analyse intelligence, how CTI can add value and be operationalised.
