Why Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Means Collaboration
The goal of CTI is to provide organizations a broader picture of new developments, mechanisms and trends in cyberspace, giving them the opportunity to build defense strategies and processes to better protect their network and reduce their attack surface.
Setting priorities is also a key benefit of CTI, eliminating false positives and identifying legitimate threats to a network helps a security team build a better defense. Teams can use CTI to determine if their system can prevent these attacks in the future, saving both time and money to an organization.
Nefarious actors are getting more sophisticated, organized and collaborative in their never ending goal to infiltrate networks around the world. They regularly share newly created tools and tactics to help further their efforts, CTI is the first line of defense against these efforts.
CTI does not exist in a vacuum, it is a collaborative effort between front line organizations, businesses, government agencies and even academic institutions. Knowledge gathered is continuously shared amongst all actors to help strengthen tools, processes and systems to predict and prevent future threats
