Cyber Intelligence Training
DIGIGUARD can speak to your group about cyber threat intelligence at your next meeting or trade event. Using evidenced-based knowledge, we train your employees and associates about the tactics, techniques and procedures used by cybercriminals. Understanding the threat actors, their intent and their capabilities can help your group better evaluate cyber threat intelligence. We will customize the presentation for your industry with related case studies and surprising details of high-potential and newly discovered threats.
Cyber Threat Intelligence
Businesses can use and benefit from cyber threat intelligence in multiple ways. Threat Intelligence can help protect and strengthen data security, reduce unplanned incident remediation spending and reduce unscheduled operational downtime from cybercrime incidents and attacks. Businesses can also gain additional insight into acceptable risk and staffing and security budget decisions. DIGIGUARD experts will illustrate other ways companies can benefit from expanded threat intelligence:
- Strategic – Threat trends and patterns can be used to form new policy and strategic security spending decisions. This intelligence provides a non-technical overview of the threat landscape, and can help inform risk insight made for executives and decision-makers.
- Operational – Potential incident insight can guide operational response planning and malware prevention campaigns for employees. This intelligence is used to focus security awareness on critical and likely areas of attack.
- Tactical – Day-to-day operational support is improved with threat intelligence by alerting security, administrative and compliance teams to specific threat indicators and threat signatures. This intelligence is used to inform about budget decisions for needed security improvements.
Sources of Cyber Threat Intelligence
Security teams are usually unable to process all of the threat alerts they receive. DIGIGUARD can present strategies for managing increasing threat alerts and false cybersecurity alarms for SMBs that may have limited coverage and resources for IT security. In addition to available monitoring software, we will share reliable sources for strategic threat intelligence and information for businesses, including:
- Policy documents from government or regulatory organizations
- Media news outlets, industry publications, and university subject-matter experts
- White papers, research reports, and content from cybersecurity organizations
Evaluating Cyber Threats
DIGIGUARD will teach your group how security professionals evaluate cyber threat intelligence. Our experts share industry knowledge and checklists in use by cybersecurity teams to assess potential threats. Triaging threats can speed up incident response and evaluation. Common questions include:
- Which vulnerability does this threat exploit, and is it present at the business?
- What kind of financial and technical damage could this attack cause?
- Has this specific attack been observed in businesses like this one?
- Which attacks are becoming more frequent?
- Which attacks are becoming less frequent?
- Which security practices are most effective against this threat?
- Is this threat industry-specific?
- Is this threat operating in our geographical area?
- What technical methods, such as social engineering or malware, are used in this type of attack?
DIGIGUARD will shed light on cyber threat intelligence and help your organization get the most benefit out of this knowledge. Having broad insight into cyber threats, and understanding the motivation and common tactics of cybercriminals, can help your business know where to spend to protect mission-critical data and systems.
