Cyber threat intelligence can help you guide more informed risk management decisions. But the challenge is oftentimes this intel is siloed and does not make its way into other areas of the business that should be using information to help mitigate overall risk. With strategic and operational threat intelligence you can better understand your weaknesses and strengths, focus on the key problem areas for your business, and know the most optimal solutions based on your limited resources.

In this webinar, experts will explore how to communicate and leverage strategic and operational threat intelligence across lines of business.

Webinar attendees can expect to learn:
  • Why visibility and timeframe are key elements to a proactive cyber risk strategy
  • How to build a governance model that raises awareness of key threats and inputs to understanding high value assets
  • How to maximize the value of threat intelligence by tying it to key business areas

It's impossible to ensure 100% security, but you can guide your investments in the right areas with targeted threat intelligence.
