Threat Intelligence: Head off Attacks Before the Damage is Done

December 5, 2016
2:40pm - 3:10pm
Grand A/B

Attackers often employ a pattern of steps, each of which leaves a distinct trail for security teams in the know. That’s where threat information sharing comes in. Similar to counterterrorism, intelligence of threat activity gives security teams advanced warning and the ability to turn the tables on hackers and prevent or halt an attack before damage occurs.

In fact, many security professionals consider information sharing the gold-standard when it comes to creating a proactive cyber defense. NH-ISAC is the nation’s Healthcare and Public Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center, responsible for making public all-hazards (physical and cyber) to our nation’s critical security infrastructure resilience.

In this session, NH-ISAC Executive Director Denise Anderson will demonstrate through case studies and personal experience why trusted, timely, and actionable cyber intelligence and situational awareness are key to securing your organization's data assets.

Attendees will leave this session understanding:

  • The importance of information sharing
  • The types of information shared
  • The manner in which information is shared
