Cyber Intelligence Centre (CIC)
Our Cyber Intelligence Centre is an advancement on the traditional Security Operations Centre (SOC). Understanding the specific risks to your business, whilst understanding who may seek to attack your business, together with how and why, are all key to preventing devastating financial or reputational damage from a cyber incident.
In today’s highly connected world, nearly every company is connected to the internet with their digital assets stored throughout various online platforms and locations. The number one challenge for most businesses is securing and protecting these assets. As the threat landscapes continually broaden and evolve, many business leaders recognise the necessity for external specialist assistance.
CAT’s dedicated Australian Cyber Intelligence Centre can provide your company with an advanced Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that will assist in mitigating your company’s cybersecurity risk by continuously monitoring, detecting and protecting your company and its digital assets from internal and external cyber-threats and security incidents.
What Is Cyber Threat Intelligence
Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is the process of collating, interrogating and evaluating various threads of information in the context of its source and reliability, and analysing it through rigorous and structured tradecraft techniques by skilled and experienced specialists with road access to all-source information. The results are analysed to produce intelligence and the resulting intelligence is disseminated and re-evaluated in the context of new information and consumer feedback. Rather than being developed in an end-to-end process, the development of intelligence is a cognitive process, referred to as the intelligence cycle.
Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now recognised by businesses of all sizes as an integral pillar in their organisation’s cybersecurity maturity strategy. When applied well, threat intelligence can assist security teams defend against an ever-more sophisticated and evolving threat landscape before, during and after attack. By studying threat actors and understanding their TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) and objectives, organisations can build more effective, more refined and more robust cyber defences.
Whilst there is of course no one-size-fits-all approach to cybersecurity, threat intelligence can provide an enhanced level of understanding around the factors that lead to attacks, mitigate the impact of one when it happens and proactively put in place measures to protect the organisation, its digital assets, and more importantly, its brand and reputation. These methods require a high level of specialist knowledge and experience and whilst it is very easy for some providers to state that they provide actional cyber threat intelligence, doing it effectively requires a lot of experience in the field.
