Threat Intelligence: Beyond IT to Business Security

Digital technologies have become the backbone of all industries amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Automation or advanced technologies have revolutionized economic and cultural growth worldwide. However, they have also increased cybersecurity risks. In this article at CIO Insight, Justin Stokes explains how organizations with massive digital operations can counter cybersecurity risks. Threat intelligence is the answer to all your woes. It can educate you about advanced approaches to prevent or mitigate malicious attacks.

Anticipate What’s Next

Threat intelligence can help evaluate the deep-rooted data, potential invaders, their purpose and efficiencies, and emerging vulnerabilities. Thus, you can make informed decisions to protect your venture. It is no longer about analyzing IT activities; threat intelligence also identifies internal and external risks. Thus, you can develop strategies to counter or avert malicious attacks.

Strategic Combat

To counter data breaches, you must have a fail-safe plan to maintain safety. According to Risk Based Security’s Year End Data Breach Quickview report, the data breach rate rose to an alarming 141 percent, i.e., up to 37 billion, in 2020. By the end of 2021, these breaches will cost over $6 trillion to businesses worldwide. The situation may worsen further.

With the C-suite becoming proactive in securing company data and IT infrastructure, threat intelligence has taken the front seat in more companies.

Future Roadmap

Some enterprises are even using advanced analytics to generate and identify actionable plans and combat emerging threats. However, flexing external security threats may not suffice until organizations follow fundamental measures that educate and update employees. To achieve strong data protection, your employees must be more careful and proactively participate in security drills.

Additionally, invest in the right threat intelligence tools to find, moderate, and reduce potential threats by detecting malicious activities. Click on the following link to read the original article: https://www.cioinsight.com/it-news-trends/threat-intelligence-its-not-just-for-it-anymore.html
