The "I" in CTI: "Intelligence" or Just "Information"? Re-applying Risk and Fundamentals Back Into Intelligence

Thursday, June 22  |  1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET

Current trends in the cyber threat intelligence industry expend considerable efforts describing technical threats, but often eschew the discussion of actual risk. The purpose of this presentation is to re-introduce the concept of risk versus a threat-only based intelligence function and discuss the swing back towards intelligence fundamentals after a decade of hyper-focused tactical research and technical innovation. This talk will present a cyber threat actor scoring system developed by Optiv's Global Threat Intelligence Center (gTIC) that articulates real-world risk to aid defenders in prioritizing relevant threats and countermeasures.
