Cyber threat intelligence
identify dangers before they cause damage

Find threats before they become a problem

Cyber Threat Intelligence is evidence-based knowledge about an emerging threat or a risk to one’s assets. The service, performed by a Cyber Threat Hunter , assumes that a threat is present, before to have the evidence . The research exploits indicators of compromise and other possible evidence of the presence of a threat.

The life cycle of Threat Intelligence

How is cyber threat intelligence produced? Raw data is not the same as intelligence. The CTI is the finished product of a six-part cycle that includes data collection, processing and analysis . The process is a loop because new questions and gaps are identified in the course of intelligence development , leading to the definition of new gathering requirements . An effective intelligence program is iterative , becoming more refined and efficient over time.
Cyber Threat Intelligence Pianificazione

1. Planning and direction

The first step is to ask the right question to guide the creation of actionable information about potential threats.

Cyber Threat Intelligence Raccolta

2. Collection

The next step is to collect raw data that meets the requirements established in the first phase.

Cyber Threat Intelligence Analisi

3. Processing

Once all the raw data has been collected, it needs to be organized with metadata, filtering out redundant information or false positives and negatives.

4. Analysis

The goal of the analysis is to search for potential security issues and notify relevant teams as defined in the first planning phase.

Cyber Threat Intelligence Distribuzione

5. Distribution

For intelligence about threats to be usable, it needs to reach the right people.

Cyber threat intelligence feedback

6. Feedback

After receiving the finished intelligence product, the initiator reviews it and determines if their questions have been answered.

Cyber Threat Intelligence in practice

Thanks to OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) techniques, we are able to scour the entire web in search of information and data that could have been stolen. OSINT searchable sources are incredibly chaotic and unstructured, yet packed with information.
It is not uncommon for company data to be stolen and used to plan a coup, for example a ransomware . This data is often shared in those areas of the web called the Deep Web and Dark Web. Below we add a non-exhaustive list of information that may already be in the wrong hands . Thanks to a Cyber Threat Hunter we are able to search and retrieve that information. At the same time, knowing what was stolen, it is much easier to organize a stronger defense.
CTI Deep Web

What could be found thanks to the OSINT

  • Stolen credentials
  • Documents on display
  • Source Code Leak
  • Systems that have been Data Breached
  • Phishing sites linked to the company name
  • Fake accounts in Social Networks
  • Unsolicited Vulnerability Reports
  • Trademark infringements
  • Domain names occupied
Attacks are only the final stage of a very complicated process of continuous research and improvement of attack techniques, mystification and scam . Cyber Threat Intelligence protects us before attacks are launched.

Vulnerability Management

Managing vulnerabilities effectively means applying an approach that prioritizes vulnerabilities based on actual risk . Cyber Threat Intelligence helps identify vulnerabilities that pose a real risk to your business by combining scan and external data with additional context on the threat actors’ TTPs.
In addition to other services such as the Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test (which concentrate on testing the system in use), Cyber Threat Intelligence provides the optimal preventive action to greatly reduce the danger.
