SMB threat intel


If you’ve landed on this page, chances are high that you are a business owner looking to secure your company assets and protect yourself against cyber attacks.

Good for you.

But how should you go about protecting yourself? After all, there is so much information out there. Just type “best cybersecurity practices to follow” into Google and you’ll get about 26,500,000 results.

But that’s the problem with information.

Information is unfiltered, unverified, and therefore, ultimately unactionable. Once it has undergone the vetting process, however, it becomes intelligence.

And intelligence is a pivotal aspect of an information security program.

Threat intelligence particularly can be a fundamental aspect of a well-rounded information security program.

Without threat intelligence, your security program is limited to either being reactive to attacks you’ve already fallen victim to. Or perhaps even worse, implementing strategies blindly without a clear vision of how those work together to harden your systems.

I say the latter is worse for several reasons.

  • The tools and techniques you are implementing may not be the most efficient for the type of assets you are wishing to protect
  • You may be implementing strategies that won’t effectively protect you given the current malicious agents across the globe.
  • Which means that you may be wasting your cybersecurity budget on methods that won’t keep you from falling victim to a cyber attack.

Threat intelligence not only identifies threats cropping up across the globe, but it can be tailored to your industry or target of choice.

Threat intelligence should be used to:

  • Identify potential threats to your organization
  • Think creatively about ways in which a cybercriminal may combine old and modern attacks to penetrate your system
  • Identify which of your unique assets are particularly compromised given the current landscape
  • Prepare threat models for hardening your system both offensively and defensively

Needless to say, threat intelligence is paramount to securing your business and forming a successful information security program.
