IntSights: The Use of External Threat Intelligence for Proactive IT Security

0

Keeping your business safe requires a proactive analysis of potential online threats. This requires more than details of latest malware and software vulnerabilities. Intelligence is also required about what is happening in cyberspace that may represent a specific threat to your business. The deepest recesses of the web need probing to gathering this intelligence. Not just the clear web, the websites that we all use on a day-to-day basis, but also the dark and, where possible, deep web.

In this podcast, Bob Tarzey speaks with Charity Wright, Cyber Threat Intelligence Advisor and Etay Maor, Chief Security Officer at IntSights. Firstly, they outline some use cases for external threat intelligence and the types of risks that can be mitigated. Then, they discuss how to probe the dark web in terms of identifying threats but also using analysis effectively. Finally, they explore how IntSights uses this analysis for mitigating threats.
