There are a variety of forms of Threat Intelligence and Analytics. These include data gathered through sources such as surveillance cameras, sensor equipment and from various computer networks. Here we will discuss Threat Intelligence and Analytics in relation to computer networks.
Threat Intelligence and Analysis can also refer to any type of information that is collected by a security service provider in response to a complaint from another source. This includes anything that could lead to detection of a potential threat.
Analysis of threat intelligence and analytics can also be used to determine whether an information system is in a position where it can protect information from a potential threat or a specific threat. It is also used to decide whether a particular type of information could be classified as sensitive. Sensitive information can include anything that involves sensitive technology or information that involves a breach of security.
A company that provides Threat Intelligence and Analytics services can use different types of software for analysis. The most common is a system that uses the Firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) that are designed to provide protection from a range of threats. Firewalls are designed to block access to a system that is in a protected mode and to prevent information from being transferred to the outside world. Intrusion Prevention Systems monitor traffic on networks and prevent unauthorised entries into the system.
Threat Intelligence and Analytics can also be used to determine if a particular threat is currently being executed and to determine how effective a particular tool may be against this threat. Examples of this might be analysing the performance of software applications that are being used to conduct a campaign of attacks or monitoring a website that has been the target of a denial of service attack. Another example is analysing a website or online social media system to detect suspicious activity and to determine whether there is malicious content on the site or is it simply a nuisance. Data from such a program can also help a company to assess the level of risk posed by a certain product or service.
Security Intelligence and Analytics can also be used to determine if a person or entity poses a threat. A simple example is an investigation into the activities of a suspect using social media sites like Facebook or MySpace. The data can be used to establish what activities the suspect engages in or uses the Internet to do. It can also be used to determine the personality of a suspect.
The types of Threat Intelligence and Analytics programs available today include many different types of software tools. Some are designed to run from servers located in a remote location. Some programs are designed to be run on mobile devices. Some run internally in the business and can provide data on a person’s Internet usage habits.
Information gathered through one of these tools can be used for many different reasons. It can provide a company with a more detailed view of an individual’s habits and behaviour, it can reveal the identities of users of social networking sites and it can even be used to track the activities of an individual over time.
Any business needs to be able to determine the levels of risk that are present in any given situation. This includes assessing the risk of acquiring a product or service that may be too risky for the company to take. By evaluating the risks, a company can determine which products and services are most likely to be useful and that they can keep working with. This information can also be used to identify opportunities where there may be a low risk to the company and then move forward with those products or services.
Information gathered from Threat Intelligence and Analytics can be shared between the company and other entities. For example, the threat data could be shared with law enforcement ao obtain evidence for criminal investigations. In some cases, data can be shared with third parties to find out if a person has ever committed a crime or fraud.
Information gathered from this type of program can be used to make a decision about hiring employees, vendors, consultants, customers and suppliers. The types of information gathered are only limited by the company’s needs. In some cases, data can also be shared internally to help develop better relationships with customers. It can even be shared with law enforcement to assist in the detection and reporting of security risks that may exist.
The amount of data that can be collected from a Threat Intelligence and Analytics program is often limited only by the budget of the company and the complexity of the program itself. As the number of Threat Intelligence and Analytics programs increases, the amount of data that can be collected is growing as well.
