When it comes to the use of cyberthreat intelligence, organizations are scrambling to deploy and use these capabilities, even though they don't even vaguely understand what cyberthreat intelligence is or how it ties in with their defensive and response systems. As a follow up to the SANS Analytics and Intelligence Survey, this survey was designed to define cyberthreat Intelligence, how it's used (as service, on premise, both) and whether it lives up to its promise.

This first of a two-part cyberthreat intelligence survey webcast will focus on defining cyberthreat intelligence and exploring the tools and standards involved in using intelligence to enhance security. Part 2 of the webcast, held on Thursday, February 19, will focus on using cyberthreat intelligence to improve incident detection and response.

Attend this webcast and learn:

  • What cyberthreat intelligence is
  • How organizations are acquiring and consuming this intelligence
