Anticipate and Understand Emerging Threats
With insight into recent activity from relevant threat actors, your security team will always be aware of the latest threats.
Optimise Vulnerability and Risk Management
Detailed threat intelligence helps your security team understand the biggest risks to your organisation, and how to remediate them.
Support Informed Decision Making
The effective use of threat intelligence is the foundation of any cyber security programme and enables informed decision making.
Take a Proactive Approach
Being able to anticipate threats allows your SOC team to take action ahead of threats, rather than respond to them.
Key Challenges Addressed
In recent years, the technical sophistication of cyberattacks has greatly increased, with tactics and attack infrastructure changing regularly. Because of this, mature threat intelligence solutions like Bridewell’s function at an operational and strategic level, rather than a purely tactical one.
Building an effective collection framework and ensuring the efficacy of threat intelligence is difficult, leading to a large amount of noise, false positives and a lack of real threats detected and prevented.
This focus on poor-quality technical indicators prohibits and minimises the use of threat intelligence in wider business and SOC processes, restricting its benefit and real value.
How it Works
Our threat intelligence analysts work closely with our or your Security Operations Centre (SOC) to develop a complete picture of your threat landscape.
Their work is underpinned by our own research, threat intelligence platform and collection framework, which uses automated and manual intelligence gathering to identify tactics, techniques and procedures, along with active indicators of compromise.
These insights are continuously shared with your business to maintain your awareness of potential vulnerabilities and risks, from advanced persistent threats to zero-day threats and ongoing attacks.
Key Elements of the Service Include:
Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is defined as "the actionable intelligence about adversaries, their tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs), and the vulnerabilities they exploit, that organizations use to inform decisions regarding their security posture and strategies."
CTI allows organisations to not only understand the current threat landscape, but also anticipate future threats. CTI can be used to support a number of security-related decisions.
Threat intelligence can be categorised as:
Strategic threat intelligence- Strategic intelligence provides a high-level view of the current threat landscape that can be used by non-technical/ executive audiences.
Tactical threat intelligence – Tactical intelligence provides insight on the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) used by attackers.
Technical threat intelligence – Technical intelligence focuses on signs that a threat campaign is about to take place or is in progress.
Operational threat intelligence – Operational intelligence is used to anticipate future attacks and how they might unfold, allowing organisations to prepare appropriately.
