Cyber Threat Intelligence

    Cyber Threat intelligence refers to the data and information that has been aggregated, transformed, analyzed, interpreted, or enriched to provide the necessary context for decision-making processes in security operations. This can include anything from a straightforward explanation of the motivations of the threat actor to a detailed technical breakdown of the attacker’s tactics, techniques, and procedures. 

    Cyber Threat Intelligence is categorized into three types:

    • Tactical Intelligence
    • Operational Intelligence
    • Strategic Intelligence

    Tactical Intelligence :

    Technical behaviors and indicators used to guide network level action and correction are referred to as tactical intelligence in CTI.

    Operational Intelligence :

    Operational intelligence is the work threat hunters and incident responders perform to catalogue adversary behavior, advise holistic remediation, and show examples of threat hunting processes

    Strategic Intelligence :

    Strategic intelligence data takes a longer-term view of threats, vulnerabilities, and adversaries, and is typically used by senior executives and other decision-makers to inform long-term planning and determining organizational direction.

    Threat intelligence feeds are information repositories that provide users with a stream of data related to various cyber threats. This data can include indicators of compromise (IoC), indicator of attacks (IoA), and other threat-related information such as information on threat actors, threat data, cyber-attacks, malicious domains, malicious IP addresses, cyber threat indicators, malware samples, malware analysis, or simply malicious activity online.

    One of the most important benefits of threat intelligence feeds is that it enables security teams to stay one step ahead of the attackers. By constantly monitoring threat feeds and analyzing new data, security analysts can identify potential threats before they have a chance to materialize.

    How do threat intelligence feeds collect data?

    Decoys and honeypots are servers that are specifically designed to be attacked, providing a way to track and monitor malicious activity they represent are fake systems that are used to lure in attackers collecting IoC and IoA; by studying how these systems are attacked, professionals can gain valuable insight into the methods and tools used by attackers. 

    Dark web forums provide a place for criminals to buy and sell sensitive information; The dark web is home to a variety of forums where users can buy and sell data, credentials, exploits, exploit kits, malware, and other malicious tools and services. Hence, by monitoring these forums, security professionals can stay ahead of the latest threats. 

    Social media is another important source of data for threat intelligence feeds; by monitoring posts and comments, security professionals can identify trending topics and target areas for further investigation. 

    Web crawlers can be used to automatically scan websites for signs of malware or other malicious activity. By constantly collecting and analyzing all this data, threat intelligence feeds provide a critical source of information for security professionals. 

    The information provided by the variety of threat intelligence solutions can be :

    • Community generated threat data
    • Real time threat intelligence
    • Open-source threat intelligence
    • Data obtained through a threat intelligence platform using a variety of some of, or, all the techniques described above
