Know Thy Enemy: Why Company-Centric Threat Intelligence is a Critical Element of Cybersecurity

Today’s defenders can have reams of information and log data available to them, with databases chronicling known threats and attack patterns. Unfortunately, the information available in these databases is most effective against documented threats or those with extremely well-established baselines. If an attacker does something different — especially when targeting a specific company, segment, or vertical—the information in these databases is often no longer sufficient or reliable.

Swiftly gathering and correlating company-centric threat intelligence has become an increasingly important aspect of cybersecurity and can make the difference between a small infection, outbreak, or breach.
