Understand the practical considerations for effective threat intelligence

Threat intelligence is contextualised information about adversarial threats’ past and present, produced through analysis of available data and information, to inform decisions and actions.

The digital revolution presents many opportunities to capitalise on an abundance of information. However, the increasing value of information also attracts unwanted attention; the risk from criminals and other hostile groups is increasing, both in magnitude and complexity. To manage this risk, organisations must build a practical view of the threats they face: their capabilities, intentions, and likely actions.

This Executive Summary explores the core of what threat intelligence is and demonstrates the value it can provide if effectively managed. It is aimed at senior executives and managers and offers a concise overview of the full report’s core findings – available to Members only.
