Threat intelligence is data that is collected, processed, enumerated and analyzed to understand a threat actor’s motives, targets, and attack behaviors. Threat intelligence enables our team to make faster, more informed, data-backed security decisions and change their behavior from reactive to proactive in the fight against malicious actors. CyberOne reaches beyond just cyber and proactively monitors threats that can affect you off the web and disrupt your business, logistics, and livelihood.

The Core Principles Of Intelligence

Strategic 

Our strategic intelligence provides insight into areas like the risks associated with certain types of industries, broad patterns in threat actor tactics and targets, and geopolitical events and trends. Strategy leverages policy documents from nation-states or nongovernmental organizations. Using the News from local and national media, industry- and subject-specific publications, or other subject-matter experts

Tactical

Tactical threat intelligence outlines the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of threat actors. It should help defenders understand, in specific terms, how their organization might be attacked and the best ways to defend against or mitigate those attacks. The key is looking for information in reports about the attack vectors, tools, and infrastructure that attackers are using, including specifics about what vulnerabilities are being targeted and what exploits attackers are leveraging, as well as what strategies and tools that they may be using to avoid or delay detection.

Operational

Operational intelligence is knowledge about cyber attacks, events, or campaigns. It gives specialized insights that help incident response teams understand the nature, intent, and timing of specific attacks. A common source of technical information is threat data feeds, which usually focus on a single type of indicator, like malware hashes or suspicious domains. Sources of information on specific attacks can come from closed sources like the interception of threat group communications, either through infiltration or breaking into those channels of communication.

Fraud Prevention

Monitor Infrastructure

High-level employees represent some of your company’s biggest assets. That also makes them a big target. No matter their level, employees can face threats from criminals, disgruntled customers, and resentful coworkers. The possible risks include everything from fraud and doxxings to violent physical attacks. An intelligence-focused security program allows your team to be alerted to and address these threats, providing your employees with better situational awareness.

Data breaches can damage customer confidence, company morale, and financial stability in your organization. Leaked personal information also exposes employees and customers to a variety of risks like fraud, doxxings, and phishing attacks. Threat intelligence allows your team to detect data leaks across criminal forums and dark web markets. By cutting the response time between a leak and its detection, you can significantly reduce the fallout from such events. 

When the unexpected happens, it's better to have it and not need it than to not have it and need it. A well-developed threat intelligence program, allows security teams to better understand the nature of an emergency when it happens and make more informed decisions in the heat of the moment.  This will ultimately ensure the safety of personnel and help mitigate the cost of any business disruptions. 

Threat intelligence collected from criminal groups provides a window into their motivations, tactics, and techniques. This can help organizations stop illicit activities like shoplifting, payment fraud, money laundering, and credit card theft. Malicious actors are on the dark web developing the latest way to defraud your organization. 

Whether your company has thousands of assets around the world, or your small business is located in a seemingly quiet town, your physical infrastructure may be the next target for a malicious actor. While it might not be feasible to hire security guards or physical security measures to safeguard these properties, a well-developed threat intelligence program can alert teams to suspicious activity as it emerges online.
