Speaker Presentation: What is Cyber Threat Intelligence?
John Stoner and Ronnie Obenhaus will present on how gathering threat intelligence data is necessary to combat various threat actors from nation states. Threat intelligence solutions gather raw data about emerging or existing threat actors and threats from a number of sources. CTI data is analyzed and filtered to produce threat intelligence feeds and management reports that contain information that can be used by automated security control solutions. The primary purpose of this type of security is to keep organizations informed of the risks of advanced persistent threats, zero-day threats and exploits, and how to protect against them.
