The primary challenge with the modern organisation is the overload of data across platforms. This is accompanied by a substantial increase in information on alerts, cyber attacks and similar threats. The need of the hour then is a strategy to anticipate and defend against potential threats rather than mid crisis damage control. Proactive Threat Intelligence helps to achieve this kind of threat management on a war footing.
“Threat intelligence is evidence-based knowledge, including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to assets that can be used to inform decisions regarding the subject’s response to that menace or hazard”.

Simply put, threat intelligence helps an organisation process an in-depth analysis of potential cybersecurity threats from internal as well as external sources. It also helps formulate a strategy for swift damage control.
