Threat intelligence is consciousness of the lapses in technology which can make an organization vulnerable for cyber attacks, and result in divulging critical information and collapsing of the organization. The predominant feature of threat intelligence is to inundate the sophisticated malware programs with a taut security infrastructure. Threat Intelligence is also the ability to envisage the incitement, intentions and methods of such malware programs; it includes acquiring knowledge about such existing or evolving threats and reasoning ways to exterminate them.
The threat intelligence can be predominantly bracketed into four categories:
Strategic Threat Intelligence- Involves high level strategic shifts and requires management level participation.
Tactical threat Intelligence – More of a technical analyzing done on methodologies and tactics employed by threats and the counter-actions which can be initiated.
Technical threat Intelligence- Focus more on distinct threats and their solutions.
Operational threat Intelligence- Analyses an organizations preparedness for specific malwares.
But all these threat intelligence strategies are mutually connected and needs an expert to bind together for its sustenance. These experts work on open source intelligence (OSNIT), social media intelligence (SOCMINT), human intelligence (HUMINT) or intelligence from the dense web to arrive at evidence which will provide mechanisms for overcoming the eventual threats.
Threat intelligence has been developed to shield the vulnerabilities businesses face by becoming more digital. The breaches and exposure of private data has increased the dependence of business organization on threat intelligence for retaining reputation. Threat intelligence will authorize organizations to engage in risk free functioning by employing secure cyber security measures. An alternate solution to maintain the integrity of confidential information on the global scenario requires effective threat intelligence.
