Threat Intelligence (TI) is an umbrella term for the collection of information and data on security risks and the threat actors behind them. Together, this information helps to prevent or limit incoming threats, and provides insights when mitigating an incident or event in Incident Response scenarios. Moreover, External Threat Intelligence (ETI) mainly focusses on the combination of internal risk data with threat intelligence originating from outside of the organisation.
There are four approaches to (External) Threat Intelligence: strategic, tactical, operational and technical.
Naturally, combining the data and risk information from within your organsiation with the external threat intelligence will provide IT Security teams with the best insights and context to manage digital risks.
Both these data approaches come together in your attack surface. Cybersprint's automated Attack Surface Management platform finds the assets and threats related to your brand - both the ones under your direct control and those which are not.
By incorporating an automated outside-in perspective with vulnerability detection, you can limit the chance of success for cybercriminals and reduce risks.
