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.

FAQs

Here are some commonly asked questions about Cyber Threat Intelligence. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team. 

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. 

Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is analysed in a variety of ways, depending on the organization and the specific goals of the analysis. CTI can be used to support incident response, threat hunting, and proactive defence efforts. One common approach to CTI analysis is to use a framework or methodology, such as the Cyber Kill Chain or MITRE's ATT&CK.
