ThreatTalk season 2 episode 5
Grading Threat Intelligence on a Curve
Security teams consume threat intelligence (TI) in many ways but struggle to find just the right mix because not all TI is created equal. Defenders constantly struggle to find the balance between high detection rates and low false positives. Meanwhile, threat investigators and incident responders need TI they can leverage to make more effective decisions faster. The result can be a complex blend of dozens of threat intelligence feeds.
To help clear away some of the confusion, ThreatTalk has invited Druce MacFarlane, Sr. Product Manager for Security and Analytics at Infoblox, to help break down the threat intelligence that underpins our protection, detection, investigation, and response capabilities.
Join host Bob Hansmann on this week’s quest for security enlightenment on ThreatTalk.
