First of all, let’s clear up some things so that all puzzle pieces could fit into their designated places!
Cyber threat intelligence is the collection and analysis of information about threats to an organization’s information systems and networks. It involves identifying, analyzing, and disseminating information about current and potential cyber threats to help organizations understand and defend against them. This information can include details about specific attacks, the tools and techniques used by attackers, and information about the groups or individuals behind the attacks. So what can companies due to fight threats in the cyberspace?
Now that you have the main soundtrack of the evergreen ghost-busting movie saga, we can move on the different steps and processes that companies may implement in order to keep out unwanted visitors and make sure that no breach may occur. To fight cyber threats, organizations can implement a variety of security measures and cyber threat intelligence tools, such as:
- Firewalls to block unauthorized access to networks.
- Anti-virus and anti-malware software to protect against malicious software.
- Regularly updating software and operating systems to fix security vulnerabilities.
- Employee education and awareness programs to educate staff on how to identify and avoid potential cyber threats.
- Strong passwords and two-factor authentication to protect against password cracking and unauthorized access.
- Regularly backing up important data to protect against data loss in the event of a cyber attack.
- Implementing security protocols and monitoring networks for unusual activity.
- Conducting regular penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in the system and fix them.
- Having an incident response plan in place to respond quickly and effectively to a cyber attack.
- Regularly monitoring the organization’s compliance with industry regulations and standards.
Choosing a holistic method
Just by implementing one aspect (cyber threat intelligence and prevention) and calling it a day will not get you anywhere. It is like barricading the main door but keeping the ground-floor windows wide open.
