Cy­ber in­tel­li­gence in­sights for a se­cure busi­ness: Ponemon In­sti­tute

Network Middle East - - UPDATE / SECURITY -

In­sight 1

The num­ber one barrier to ef­fec­tive threat in­tel­li­gence is in­ter­nal si­los among IT de­part­ments and lines of busi­ness. This find­ing in­di­cates the im­por­tance of a cen­tralised pro­gram and tools to make the ex­change of threat in­tel­li­gence eas­ier.

In­sight 2

60% of en­ter­prises re­port that their threat in­tel­li­gence goes stale within min­utes. Lack of time­li­ness makes threat in­tel­li­gence ir­rel­e­vant. Only 9% of or­gan­i­sa­tions say they re­ceive threat in­tel­li­gence in near real time.

In­sight 3

45% of en­ter­prises in­ves­ti­gate cy­ber threats man­u­ally. This high per­cent­age of man­ual cy­ber threat in­ves­ti­ga­tion may con­trib­ute to the dis­sat­is­fac­tion with the qual­ity of threat in­tel­li­gence they’re ob­tain­ing. Man­ual threat in­ves­ti­ga­tion leads to slower in­ci­dent re­sponse.

In­sight 4

Only 31% of or­gan­i­sa­tions say their threat in­tel­li­gence is ac­tion­able. This means that their CTI does not pro­vide enough con­text for it to be ac­tion­able, mak­ing it in­ef­fec­tive for se­cu­rity op­er­a­tions.

In­sight 5

Only 35% of or­gan­i­sa­tions say their cy­ber threat in­tel­li­gence is ac­cu­rate. Lack of ac­cu­racy of CTI is among the top three com­plaints of en­ter­prises about their threat in­tel­li­gence data. Work­ing with in­ac­cu­rate data makes it dif­fi­cult for any team to make the right de­ci­sions.
