Cyber threats continue to evolve and have broader reach as information flows more freely between threat actors in the Darkweb. The underground economy allows for the exchange of exploits for newly discovered vulnerabilities and instructions on how to leverage these exploits against individuals and organizations. The need for a cyber threat intelligence program is integral as it allows organizations to understand the threats on the horizon and how threat actors are operationalizing the information available to them to attack organizations for monetary and information gain.
This talk gives an overview of the existing and emerging threats and leverages recent global ransomware events and the precursor events that lead to the outbreaks as a framework to demonstrate how cyber threat intelligence is integral to all aspects of a security program.
Dr. Christopher Mascaro, Vice President, Threat Intelligence & Analytics at First Data has over 15 year’s experience in cyber security and analytics experience across government intelligence, consulting and academia. Dr. Mascaro has applied his government experience to the private sector by helping Fortune 100 companies build and mature their cyber security programs by applying intelligence community best practices.
