5 steps to incorporate threat intelligence into your security awareness program
In our recent article, we highlighted that every significant and public attack exploited people to either get an initial foothold in a target organization or as the entire attack vector. These attacks highlight the need for awareness as a top concern of security programs.
However the reality is that generic awareness materials are of little use. Just saying that you have an awareness program, with standard content, does little good in taking advantage of the exposure the ongoing attacks are generating within your organization and the general public. Awareness programs should incorporate Threat Intelligence, which provides digestable products of continuous adversary monitoring, organized research, and threat analysis. The result is timely and actionable information about the likely attack vectors and targets of your potential and actual attackers. This intelligence can be made compelling and relatable to audiences seeing similar attacks in the news.
