Cyber Threat Intelligence might not be the solution
Jules Pagna Disso ( Nettitude )
Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is perceived as the next big “thing” that can help reduce, slow down or stop
the increasing number of cyber-attacks. However, CTI means different things to different people. Should that really
be the case? Despite the proliferation and the cost of threat intelligence feeds, the threat level remains high in most cases
i.e. mitigations against cyber-attacks are not as effective as they could be.
The question is: What are the requirements for efficient cyber threat intelligence? How we can assess its success will
be explored during this seminar. We will close by discussing some of the author’s work on the topic.
