With the expanding attack surface and the growing sophistication of threats, just reacting to an incident is not enough. Increasingly complex environments provide multiple opportunities for attackers. Each industry and each organization has its own unique data to protect, and uses its own set of applications, technologies, etc. All this introduces an enormous number of variables into possible methods of executing an attack, with new methods emerging daily.
With enterprises increasingly falling victim to advanced and targeted attacks, it’s clear that a successful defense requires new methods. To protect themselves, businesses need to take a proactive approach, constantly adapting their security controls to the ever-changing threat environment. The only way to keep up with these changes is to build an effective threat intelligence program.
