Threat intelligence is the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information about current and emerging cyber threats. This typically involves gathering data from a wide range of sources, including open-source intelligence (OSINT), commercial threat intelligence feeds, and internal security data.
This data is then analyzed to identify patterns, trends, and indicators of compromise (IoCs). This data can then be used to more effectively detect and respond to threats.
Threat intelligence can be used in various ways to enhance an organization’s cybersecurity posture. It can be integrated into security tools, or used to inform security policies, incident response plans, and risk assessments.
