  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Jaime Blasco

In recent years, the threat intelligence landscape has been evolving rapidly. As the number of third-party threat intelligence services has grown, security practitioners are trying to understand what types of threat intelligence tools and services are providing the most actionable data, and at what cost? In addition, a new breed of threat intelligence service has emerged that leverages \crowd-sourcing", where we all learn from each other and mutually benefit.

Join Dave Shackleford, founder of Voodoo Security and a Senior SANS Instructor, and Jaime Blasco, Director of AlienVault labs for this session covering:

  • Trends in the global threat landscape
  • The current state of threat intelligence services and data
  • The value of data diversity in threat intelligence
  • How to use collaborative threat intelligence to prioritize defensive tactics
