WHAT:

The shift to cloud-based services and ubiquitous use of web and mobile applications to conduct business, is making the need to gather security threat intelligence outside the firewall a necessity. Effective detection and response against an evolving array of threats requires specific intelligence and data about attacker activity and infrastructure. The SAWG's Cyber Intelligence Repository (Avalanche) provides a valuable basis for establishing and building upon this intelligence data. In this presentation, Elias Manousos will explain how to extend and enrich Internet threat intelligence by leveraging existing datasets to improve attack detection, incident response and remediation.
