    Cyber Threat Intelligence is the practice of detecting and compiling cyber threats that could potentially impact an individual, organization, or business and hence Cyber Threat Intelligence is a key pillar in any security stack. CTI can be gathered both automatically and manually.

    Cyber Threat Intelligence Combines and integrates tactical, operational, and strategic threat intelligence into your existing stack provides valuable insights into IOC (indicators of compromise), bad threat actors, and methodologies while emphasizing a proactive security stance.

    CTI can assist in this process by identifying common indicators of compromise (IOC) and it will recommend necessary steps to prevent attack or infection. Some of the most IOCs includes:

    1- IP addresses, URLs and Domain names: Malware targeting an internal host that is communicating with known threat actor is an example of it.

    2- Email addresses, email subject, links and attachments: A phishing attempt through an email attached with malicious content leads to suspecious activity.

    3- Registry keys, filenames & file hashes: An attack from an external host has already been flagged for abnormal behaviour.

    Cyber threat intelligence is the information that an organisation uses to understand the threats that organisation is going to face . It is used to prevent, and identify cyber threats which can take advantage on resources of the organisation.Normally Automated solutions only scan for threats while threat hunters use Human Intelligence (HUMINT) to engage directly with threat actors and understand the upcoming threats.

    Threat intelligence or CTI is information of an organization uses to understand the threats that have, will, or are currently targeting the organization. This info is used to prepare, prevent, and identify cyber threats looking to take advantage of valuable resources.

    Cyber Threat Equation is required for:

    1. Stopping attacks before they begin: If you know a domain or piece of malware is getting sold, you can block it before it gets weaponized. And knowing about leaked credentials means you can change those credentials or force multi-factor authentication (MFA).

    2. Speeding up triage and investigations: Knowing you have a problem and the nature of the problem is half the solution. Access to systems that offer a “Google” of underground sources means you know if any IOC was discussed via these sources, who the actor responsible for this communication is, etc. This allows you to more quickly and easily hunt and find out if these indicators are malicious.

    3. Shortening the dwell time: Knowing if an IOC points to an isolated threat rather than a sustained campaign would result in a different security response.
