The collection, classification, and exploitation of knowledge about adversaries - collectively known as cyber threat intelligence - gives network defenders information superiority that is used to reduce the adversary's likelihood of success with each subsequent intrusion attempt. Responders need accurate, timely, and detailed information to monitor new and evolving attacks, as well as methods to exploit this information to put in place an improved defensive posture.

The Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit & Training brings together top experts and practitioners for in-depth threat intelligence talks, world-class SANS training, DFIR NetWars, and exclusive networking opportunities! This year's Summit aims to provide specific analytical techniques and capabilities that can be utilized to properly create and maintain threat intelligence in your organization.
