In this webinar, you’ll hear about some common challenges organizations face when putting their threat intelligence to work, whether it’s sourced internally or externally. Too many SOCs are drowning in data today, and there is almost always room to improve how you consume and apply your existing threat intelligence – as an example, many successful SOCs integrate their threat intelligence capability directly within their orchestration and automation solution (SOAR). You’ll hear some thoughts around how to make the most of your existing threat intelligence data, and you’ll leave the webinar with some actionable ideas to consider within your own environment.
