Threat Intelligence: Why Awareness is Critical, and Collaboration is Essential | Razorwire Podcast

Collecting information on cyber threats and analysing data on a regular basis is essential to ensure your defences are tight and to allow you to pre-empt potential attacks. 

Richard Cassidy and Josh Davies, experts in the cyber threat intelligence field, join us today to discuss how collaboration between cyber professionals when it comes to data and intelligence is essential for keeping your environment secure in a world where threats evolve on a daily basis.   

Hear from the experts on the benefits of ‘tribal’ (or shared) or threat intelligence, how it can help your enterprise defend against cyber threats while also giving you better value from your security tools, and why information silos still exist when we know that sharing information makes us stronger.  

What do we cover in this episode? 

  • The application and utilisation of threat intelligence in decision making 
  • How to use intelligence and threat data to get the most out of your security tools 
  • The difficulties of getting threat intelligence and why we are reluctant to share information 
  • Great examples of collaboration in fighting threats, e.g. Log4j 
  • The importance of the Intelligence Cycle  
  • Platforms for intelligence sharing and collaboration
