At its most basic level, cyber threat intelligence is knowledge based on evidence obtained by human or computer analysis that is used to advise entities on current or potential threats to the entity.
Entities — which are often banks, financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies, large organizations and the military — can use cyber threat intelligence information to make decisions on handling those hazards.
Cyber Threat Intelligence for Financial Institutions
Cyber threat intelligence is becoming increasingly important for banks and financial institutions of all kinds. Thieves and hackers are using more sophisticated technology to obtain information that allows them to commit fraud without detection, putting financial institutions and their customers at risk.
Analyzing data for patterns that may indicate a current or potential threat can help alert management about the issue so they can effectively handle it with minimal negative consequences.
Where Does Cyber Threat Intelligence Take Place?
Q6Cyber, a leading cyber security company, has partnered with SQN to provide financial institutions with cutting-edge security. Actionable cyber threat intelligence is gathered by going where the hackers go – the darknet, the deep web, paste sites, social media sites, and hacker forums. U.S. sources are monitored, as well as other countries, like China and Russia. Both computer and human analysts gather data that could indicate a potential attack or hazard and report to the entity it pertains to.
By monitoring a variety of both public and restricted sources of data, Q6Cyber can provide early detection of potential problems to help mitigate risks.
