In the 21st century organisations are required to operate in a world which centres on identifying and exploiting opportunities to create value from information. However, this value, as it is identified and enhanced, attracts unwanted attention. From the lone wolf to advanced nation states, adversaries recognise they can also benefit from this information, either through theft or denying its use by others. Many organisations are looking to threat intelligence for this view of their adversaries, but often find it to be ill-defined, costly to buy or produce, and difficult to integrate into decision making, leading to a failure to deliver the expected business aims. I will focus on practical aspects of collecting, processing, analysing and disseminating actionable Threat Intelligence.
