Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is information that enables organizations to understand the nature, source, and intent of cyber threats. This information can be used to support organizational decision-making in order to defend against or mitigate these threats. CTI can be derived from a variety of sources, including technical data, human intelligence, and open-source information. Organizations can use CTI to support a variety of activities, including identifying and prioritizing threats, developing and implementing mitigation strategies, and tracking the effectiveness of these strategies over time. CTI can also be used to support incident response and forensics activities.
Threat intelligence feeds are data sources that provide information on potential threats to an organization. These feeds can come from a variety of sources, including government agencies, private companies, and individuals. The information contained in a threat intelligence feed can be used to help an organization identify and defend against potential threats.
