The Power of Threat Intelligence in your Cybersecurity Program

  • Jason McEachin, Director, Sales Engineering
  • Thursday, March 26th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

Cybersecurity attacks dominate the headlines everyday, with large and small organizations alike being breached and impacted. Analysts predict these attacks will increase in 2015, and security personnel today are making decisions based on incomplete information and lack of confidence in data. Although most organizations have internal information on threats and vulnerabilities, and some have also invested in SIEMs that analyze information from multiple sources across their network, they also need to include external threat intelligence to help identify malicious activity and allow them mitigate risks. Organizations need a more effective threat intelligence management capability to quickly prioritize and enrich events to enable robust response to attacks.

During this presentation, we will discuss how:

- Harnessing the power of threat intelligence collection, aggregation, ingestion, and automation for full threat intel integration into your cybersecurity defense lifecycle.

- Adding global context to internal and external threat intel sources enables decision support both within and outside the enterprise perimeter.

- Aggregating disparate threat information supports improved analysis and confidence.
