The latest IBM X-Force report highlighted threats stemming from misconfigured cloud servers and inadvertent insider negligence and examined malware trends from 2017 that could continue into 2018.
By tailoring threat intelligence to the specific concerns of the analysts consuming it, organizations can reduce alert fatigue and achieve higher levels of security maturity.
As the threat landscape evolves, it is increasingly important for organizations large and small to invest in automated incident response solutions to reduce dwell time and eliminate alert fatigue.
Just like a college basketball team needs to know its X's and O's to win the big game and cut down the nets, a security team needs threat intelligence to win the ongoing battle against cyberthreats.
By optimizing intelligence at the strategic, operational and tactical levels, organizations can promote collaboration and bolster the incident response capabilities of their security teams.
The new IBM Security Community enables cybersecurity professionals to connect with peers, share threat intelligence and glean insights from subject matter experts.
By implementing orchestration and automation (O&A), security leaders can deliver the real-time threat intelligence their understaffed analyst teams need to punch above their weight.
Many organizations still rely on reactive blocking and tackling strategies, but proactive threat hunting is the only way to detect the type of chatter that is indicative of an impending attack.
To defend their confidential data from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals, security teams must leverage machine learning to perform analytical tasks that are too tedious for humans to complete.
A collaborative defense strategy enables companies to unite siloed departments, integrate threat defense and extend security capabilities beyond the individual power of each tool.
