The concept of threat intelligence is alluring – marketed as a powerful tool to help manage business risk at all levels of an organisation.

Yet although threat intelligence is an increasingly popular “must-have” for organisations, there is little consensus on what it actually is, or how to use it. A wide array of threat intelligence products is now on offer in the market-place. However, without any real understanding of what they need or why, organisations risk investing large amounts of time and money with little positive effect on security.

To address this, MWR InfoSecurity reviewed the area and designed a framework for threat intelligence that can be scaled to different sectors, sizes of organisation, and organisational goals.

This paper is the product of literature reviews, internal experience, and a large number of interviews with people involved in threat intelligence and related fields across a range of organisations.

The paper is currently open for comments, if you have any feedback, please contact
