Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is never an end in itself. It instead serves a broader mission: to inform, advise, and empower stakeholders within an organization. This talk will outline how an organisation can build and develop a successful CTI function that is able to improve security outcomes and empower individuals across a security function. The talk will first outline what FireEye Mandiant considers the gold standard for CTI functions, before outlining advanced CTI use cases among various stakeholders.

Attendees will learn: 
– The critical components of any successful CTI function.
– How to shift from a reactive to proactive CTI posture.
– How to leverage MITRE ATT&CK mapping and YARA rules to improve security outcomes.
– Utilising intelligence in cyber risk.
