In cyberwarfare, cybersecurity threats and attacks are constantly expanding and evolving. Due to the sophistication and modern approaches used by malicious actors, security professionals in Security Operation Centers (SOCs) are unable to deal with critical threats as effectively and quickly as possible.
Undoubtedly, today’s cyber threats are very fast and sophisticated. Even their detection and prevention is no longer an easy task. To prevent organizations from being a victim of cyber threats and attacks, a proactive cybersecurity approach must be used. That is the reason the Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) framework comes into place. CTI has become a critical tool for organizations trying to protect their networks and infrastructure.
Use Case 6: SIEM Security with Artificial Intelligence
SIEM security that is equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and user behavior analytics can deal with internal threats. AI capabilities in SIEM help security professionals to automate tasks that are otherwise manual and repetitive. Doing so can also help to swiftly detect threats and suspicious activities in network traffic and event logs.
Threat Intelligence Feeds, in fact, are an actionable threat data related to artifacts or indicators collected from any third-party vendors in order to learn from other company’s visibility and access to enhance your own cyber threat response and awareness. The example of these third-party vendors includes Kaspersky Threat Intelligence and Alient Vault OTX. Threat Intelligence Feeds concentrate on a single area of interest and they are delivered online. For instance, these data feeds can be about IP addresses, hashes, or domains.
Threat hunting is the practice of iteratively and proactively hunting for threats or Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) that are launched by adversaries. Unlike traditional security systems such as antivirus program, firewalls, or SIEM, who use a reactive approach to threats, threat hunting utilizes a proactive approach to pursuing threats even before they compromise organization’s network or IT infrastructure.
