Where does the Threat Intel you consume every day really come from?
The importance of integrating Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) into the defense plan of any organization that has reached a certain level of maturity in cybersecurity is clear. CTI allows to enrich existing tools to increase threat detection & identification capabilities and to add context around new attacks to be able to decide the best actions to take to protect against them.
If a lot has been said about the use of CTI from the point of view of organizations that use it (or should!), the production side of CTI is less known. Based on his experience over the past 12 years managing teams dedicated to cyber threat research and CTI production, Alexis will explain how the work of researchers and analysts translates into useful CTI for organizations that have to defend themselves against increasingly sophisticated attackers.
Specifically, this presentation will explain different pillars of CTI production through different concrete examples.
