    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    By 2030, Threat Intelligence will be the cornerstone of every organization′s cybersecurity strategy, providing comprehensive and actionable insights that allow companies to proactively protect their networks, data, and assets.

    The industry will have seen a major shift towards intelligence-led security, with organizations using advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning technologies to analyze massive amounts of data and identify emerging threats in real-time.

    Threat Intelligence teams will be fully integrated into the decision-making process, collaborating closely with all departments to align security strategies with business objectives. They will also play a crucial role in third-party risk management, ensuring that all vendors and partners meet strict security standards.

    With the increasing interconnectivity of devices and systems, Threat Intelligence will expand beyond traditional cyber threats to include physical security risks, such as supply chain attacks and insider threats. This holistic approach to threat management will provide organizations with a comprehensive view of their risk landscape and enable them to develop proactive mitigation strategies.

    The impact of Threat Intelligence will go beyond just cybersecurity, with organizations leveraging intelligence to gain a competitive advantage, inform business decisions, and identify new opportunities in their industries.

    Overall, by 2030, Threat Intelligence will be an indispensable and integral part of every organization, drastically reducing the risk of cyber attacks and enabling businesses to thrive in an increasingly complex and evolving threat landscape.

    Threat Intelligence Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Client Situation:
    The client is a large global financial services company with a widespread network of branches and customers. Due to the nature of their business, the company faces constant cyber threats and risks from both internal and external sources. In recent years, the frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks have increased, posing a significant threat to the organization′s operations, reputation, and overall business objectives. The client has a well-established Security Operations Center (SOC) responsible for monitoring and responding to security incidents. However, they lack a comprehensive and effective threat intelligence program that would provide them with valuable insights into potential cyber threats and help them make proactive risk management decisions.

    Consulting Methodology:
    To address the client′s problem of inadequate intelligence support for conducting threat and risk assessments, our consulting team follows a five-step methodology:

    1. Assess the current threat intelligence capabilities: The first step is to conduct a thorough assessment of the client′s existing threat intelligence program. This includes reviewing their processes, tools, and technologies, as well as understanding their data sources and collection methods. The purpose of this assessment is to identify any gaps and areas of improvement in their current program.

    2. Define intelligence requirements: The next step is to work closely with the client to identify their intelligence requirements. This involves understanding their business objectives, risk appetite, and critical assets, to determine the types of threats and risks they need to focus on. We also collaborate with their SOC team to establish their specific information needs for effective threat detection and response.

    3. Identify and evaluate data sources: In this step, we help the client identify and evaluate potential data sources to gather relevant threat intelligence. These could include open source feeds, commercial feeds, government threat databases, dark web monitoring, and internal sources such as logs and network traffic. We prioritize information sources based on the client′s requirements, budget, and the credibility of the data.

    4. Develop a threat intelligence framework: Based on the assessed intelligence requirements and identified data sources, our team develops a tailored threat intelligence framework for the client. This framework outlines the processes, tools, and technologies required to gather, analyze, and share threat intelligence across the organization.

    5. Implementation and continuous improvement: The final step involves the implementation of the threat intelligence program along with monitoring and regular reporting to assess its effectiveness. Our team also conducts training sessions for key stakeholders to ensure proper understanding and adoption of the program. We continuously work with the client to enhance the program by incorporating new threat intelligence sources and adapting to evolving cyber threats.

    Implementation Challenges:
    Implementing an effective threat intelligence program for an organization can pose various challenges, including:

    1. Lack of skilled personnel: Building and maintaining a comprehensive threat intelligence program requires skilled and experienced personnel. The client may face challenges in recruiting and retaining these experts.

    2. Budget constraints: Acquiring and managing various threat intelligence sources can be costly, and the client may have budget constraints to invest in all necessary data feeds.

    3. Data integration: The client may face challenges in integrating data from different sources in a consistent and structured manner for analysis.

    Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):
    1. Time taken to identify and respond to potential threats
    2. Reduction in the number of false positives in threat detection
    3. Improvement in risk management decision-making
    4. Number of incidents prevented due to proactive threat intelligence
    5. Time taken to remediate security incidents
    6. Percentage of critical assets covered by the threat intelligence program
    7. Feedback from key stakeholders on the effectiveness of the program
    8. Number of relevant threat intelligence sources integrated into the program

    Management Considerations:
    1. Collaboration between the threat intelligence team and SOC: It is crucial for the two teams to work closely together to ensure a seamless flow of information and efficient response to threats.

    2. Ongoing training and awareness: Threat intelligence is a continuous process, and it is essential to keep the workforce regularly trained and updated on emerging threats and the usage of threat intelligence tools.

    3. Continuous improvement: Threat intelligence is not a one-time exercise. The program needs to evolve continuously to stay ahead of new threats and changing business priorities.
