Types of Threat Intelligence
There are four types of threat intelligence that organizations must gather for an effective cybersecurity defense.
With Threat intelligence/ Dark Web data feeds, you will be able to make:
- Strategic Decisions: offers high-level information on threats and is usually meant for a non-technical audience, typically at the executive level. It gives the user an idea of what the possible ramifications of a breach could be to better inform their decision-making.
- Tactical Decisions: provides specific details regarding an attacker’s methodologies, targets, and the tools they use. This information typically goes to technical users, like security experts, and tells them what indicators of compromise (IoCs) they should look for.
- Technical Decisions: gives both technical and non-technical employees signs to look for that indicate a specific type of threat, including key phrases in email subject lines. This type of intelligence changes often to account for changing attacker tactics.
- Operational Decisions: relies on gaining intelligence about a specific incoming attack, typically through social media and chat rooms. It can provide more insight to where and when an attacker will hit, which assets are vulnerable, and how an organization can stop the breach before it happens.
