The definition of cyber threat intelligence

Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is information that has been aggregated, transformed, analyzed, interpreted, or enriched to provide the necessary context for decision-making processes.

Why does cyber threat intelligence matter to enterprises?

As the old saying “know the enemy, know yourself, and in every battle you will be victorious”, cyber threat intelligence plays the same important role in cyber war. It gives enterprises an overview of the threat landscape. Enterprise can make better cybersecurity defense plans to secure daily operation.

3 levels of cyber threat intelligence

Cyber threat intelligence contains 3 levels - strategic, operational, and tactical threat intelligence.
1. Strategic Threat Intelligence (Non-Technical, usually CXX users) : Identifies the Who and Why. Uses high-level information (whitepapers, policy documents, publications, etc.)
2. Operational Threat Intelligence (Mixed, SOC leaders, analysts, etc.): Works on the How and Where. Uses information about threat actor tactics, techniques, procedures, etc.
3. Tactical Threat Intelligence (Technical, usually Security Operations Center (SOC) personnel): Look at the What. Uses Indicators of Compromise (IoC) such as file names, hashes, domain names, IP addresses, etc.
