Cyber Threat Intelligence

Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) originated with analysts and incident responders. In its humble beginnings, CTI consisted of ad hoc methods for information sharing and analysis. CTI has since matured significantly, with the development of models, frameworks, processes, and tools. It has also become a marketing buzzword in the cyber security industry, which can make it challenging to understand exactly what CTI is. This talk will present a brief history of CTI, explain and illustrate what CTI is and what it is not, and explain the differences between data, information, and intelligence. The talk will also cover the current state of the art and the potential future of CTI, including current challenges, models, tools, and ongoing research efforts.
