5315 - Applying Threat Intelligence to Improve Security Awareness Programs

Tuesday, September 26
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Most security awareness programs are not very effective against real attacks. They provide generic information, without motivation or relevance, and expect the average user to detect and counter highly skilled attackers at random. Yet security professionals blame users for falling prey to advanced attacks. Threat intelligence involves understanding potential and ongoing attacks to prevent, detect and react to those attacks. Incorporating threat intelligence into awareness programs can make them more relevant, as well as allows for better focus of the awareness messaging.

This presentation will detail how to take threat intelligence and incorporate it into awareness materials.
