ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Fighting ‘Unknown-Unknown’ Threats with Actionable Threat Intelligence
As the cybersecurity landscape becomes progressively more intense, acting on available information is critical, but practitioners are struggling to effectively gather, consolidate, and analyze threat intelligence data. Which impacts their ability to operationalize the intel and define key action points to defend the business.
The challenge is to contextualize the overwhelming volumes of data available today. Security teams must visualize the impact and the hidden connections within the data to arrive at key action points. They need to go beyond reactive, baseline detection, to a more predictive and proactive identification of ‘unknown-unknown’ threats. How do you make threat intelligence actionable and metrics-driven, through quantified, repeatable processes? How do you consolidate intelligence from disparate sources and distill it – consistently, and in near real-time?
If you are looking for fresh perspectives on the above, join ISMG’s Varun Haran for an exclusive executive roundtable discussion, guided by insight from and proposes to chronicle the analytics and threat intelligence journey in cybersecurity and discuss some global best practices.
Discussion points will include:
- Actionable threat intelligence and the current threat landscape;
