SANS 2019 Cyber Threat Intelligence Survey

Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) analyzes information about the intent, capabilities and opportunities of adversaries in cyberspace, making it a valuable resource for organizations as well as individuals serving in roles such as network architects, security operations team members, incident responders and high-level decision makers, all of whom must be prepared for the wide range of threats challenging their organizations. SANS has been tracking the evolution of CTI as a mechanism for prevention, detection and response through seven CTI summits and five surveys, and has seen a gradual maturation of the field and its applications in information security.

This survey also includes information surrounding:

  • The value of CTI
  • Best practices for defining CTI requirements
  • How organizations leverage CTI
