New research shows that the job of cybersecurity staffers is getting far more difficult than it was five years ago. Gone are the days when updating A/V software and applying patches were considered "security." Today's security pros need to be concerned with threat intelligence, threat hunting, far more malicious zero-days and state-sponsored attacks. Today's webcast looks at the challenges today's security team faces, the training necessary today to meet those challenges, and the pressures on the infosec team that might not have existed just a few years ago.
Recent research from analyst group ESG says that 58 percent of organizations have some kind of threat intelligence program, but a reliance on manual processes and disparate tools means many firms struggle to get real value from the intelligence they have. But, this doesn’t have to be the case.
In this webinar, Jon Oltsik, author of the ESG report titled “Operationalizing Threat Intelligence With a Complete Solution” will look at how organizations can better align their threat intelligence capabilities to their pain points and security goals.
Watch the recording now to learn:
• Why security operations is harder now than two years ago.
• What is needed for a valuable threat intelligence solution.
• How to get the most out of your threat intelligence program.
Threat intelligence done right gives you a window into the world of your adversary. But with so many types of threat intelligence services and products available, finding the right one to meet your objectives can be challenging. How do you decide which features are must-haves for your organization?
This webinar will help you answer six key questions at the center of deciding how to invest in a threat intelligence solution. Watch the recording now to find out:
• Why it’s not all about sources — context is key.
• The advantages of integrating threat intelligence with your other security solutions.
• How you can scale your threat intelligence investment over time.
Allan Liska, Threat Intelligence Analyst, Recorded Future
It’s that time when we strive to rid ourselves of old habits and embrace fresh ideas. In security, threat intelligence is certainly seen as one of those fresh ideas. According to Gartner’s recent “Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services,” “One benefit of threat intelligence is that it improves decision making in core security processes, such as incident response and policy enforcement. Better visibility of the threat landscape helps CISOs justify the need for additional resources and understand the problems they encounter.”
In this webinar, Allan Liska, author of “Threat Intelligence in Practice,” will address five practical steps from Gartner’s report to help you make better use of threat intelligence in your organization, including:
• Understanding the threat intelligence lifecycle.
• Knowing the difference between data feeds and threat intelligence.
• Centralizing, customizing, and collaborating with intelligence.
• Integrating with your existing security infrastructure.
• Using vulnerability intelligence to power smarter patching.
Chris Poulin, Principal/Director, Booz Allen Hamilton and Staffan Truvé, CTO and Co-Founder of Recorded Future
Machine learning is no longer just the tool of tech companies. While it is now being baked into most security protection technologies, threat actors are a step ahead — adopting machine learning to conduct increasingly sophisticated attacks, and to circumvent AI-based defenses. In this webinar, Chris Poulin, Principal/Director with Booz Allen Hamilton and Staffan Truvé, CTO and Co-Founder of Recorded Future will show the good and bad of AI and machine-learning technologies, including:
• How the collection and analysis of open source and technical data at unprecedented scale allows proactive decision making.
• What humans can do — but beyond human scalability.
• Examples of successful threat actor campaigns utilizing AI techniques.
