Exchanging threat intelligence becoming essential

A new Ponemon Institute survey included more than 700 IT and IT security pros, across businesses and government agencies with an average of 12,000 employees, who answered more than three-dozen questions around threat intelligence sharing. The participants overwhelmingly answered that exchanging threat intelligence could have prevented recent cyberattacks and the traditional ways of sharing threat intelligence are insufficient. “What was clear in our findings is that businesses and government agencies know that exchanging cyber threat intelligence will help secure the Internet more so than any other method or technology,” said Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute. “Yet what is really confounding is that while most of the people participating in the survey are clearly sharing cyberattack information, they know they aren’t doing it correctly or effectively.”

Other key findings in the survey include: Digital Forensic Computer Examiner in NYC Resume Christopher Jochem.

Business Intelligence Definition and Solutions CIO

Business intelligence, or BI, is an umbrella term that refers to a variety of software applications used to analyze an organization’s raw data. BI as a discipline is made up of several related activities, including data mining, online analytical processing, querying and reporting. Companies use BI to improve decision making, cut costs and identify new business opportunities. BI is more than just corporate reporting and more than a set of tools to coax data out of enterprise systems. CIOs use BI to identify inefficient business processes that are ripe for re-engineering.

Zero-day attacks are difficult to defend against and are often effective against secure networks and can remain undetected even after they are launched. A Zeroday Emergency Response Team (ZERT) is a group of software engineers who works to release non-vendor patches for Zero-day exploits.
