BCS ISSG in partnership with Cisco Secure & Cisco Talos -Threat Intelligence as part of Cyber Security.

Watch the video



During the 20th century the visibility of threats and the capability to do something about it was limited to the public sector. Intelligence agencies, militaries and law enforcement agencies developed threat intelligence skills as a means of understanding and prioritising threats.

In the 21st century it is the private sector which is primarily affected by cyber threats and that has the visibility and the capability to respond. Yet the private sector often lacks the threat intelligence skills to make sense of the large amounts of information available. In this presentation, I’ll review the history of threat intelligence and describe how organisations can apply threat intelligence skills to better understand the threats landscape and use this understanding to drive good decision making.
