As the threat landscape evolves, organizations have accepted the fact that they have to take a more proactive detection approach to advanced threats rather than relying on traditional defenses. As a result, customers have turned to detection and response tools that allow for proactive “hunting” for Indicators of Attack (IoA) and reactive “sweeping” for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Once found, those tools are required to automatically respond to attacks or to at least provide for an action from the Incident Response (IR) staff. Unfortunately, due to the number and complexity of both these attacks and the detection/response tools, organizations struggle to hire enough qualified staff and stay on top of the discovered threats. This is compounded by a worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage. Managed detection and response (XDR) provides advanced threat hunting, detection, and response as a service to organizations that seek assistance for their own IR staff, or for those who wish to o
A survey commissioned by Intel Security and conducted by Evalueserve, in conjunction with the report, suggests that a majority of companies lack confidence in their ability to detect targeted attacks in a timely manner. Even companies best prepared to handle targeted attacks are taking the time to investigate high volumes of events. Key findings include 78% of those able to detect attacks in minutes had a proactive, real-time SIEM solution.
Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as “threat intelligence” isn’t. It’s data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (“IOCs”), none of these things are “intelligence.” They’re data.
In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.

As cyber attacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations are investing more into incident detection and response capabilities. Event monitoring and correlation technologies and security operations are often tied to incident handling responsibilities, but the number of attack variations is staggering, and many organizations are struggling to develop incident detection and response processes that work for different situations.
In this webcast, we'll outline the most common types of events and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that naturally feed intelligent correlation rules, and walk through a number of different incident types based on these. We'll also outline the differences in response strategies that make the most sense depending on what types of incidents may be occurring. By building a smarter incident response playbook, you'll be better equipped to detect and respond more effectively in a number of scenarios.
