Featuring 992 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cyber Threat Intelligence improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 992 standard requirements:

  1. Do outside organizations or vendors supply your organization with the latest information regarding cyber-related threats, intelligence, and/or indicators of compromise?

  2. How effective is your organizations process for using actionable intelligence from internal sources ( as configuration log activities) to predict malicious activities?

  3. How effective is your organizations process for using actionable intelligence from external sources ( as vendor-supplied threat feeds) to predict malicious activities?

  4. How is your point about eliminating direct connectivity to the internet different from efforts today by utilities to minimize contact points with the internet?

  5. Does your organization lack sufficient staff, Threat Intelligence, or analytical tools to accurately predict, detect, and effectively respond to cyber attacks?

  6. Does your organization test its Incident Response plan regularly and update it as needed based on Cyber Incidents that have occurred and Threat Intelligence?

  7. Has your organization in the past year experienced a cyberSecurity Incident where Threat Intelligence played a significant role in detection and/or response?

  8. Have your control system cyber assets and/or control system network ever been infected with malware or purposely breached by internal or external parties?

  9. How effective is your organizations cyber defense and how effective are your processes for using Threat Intelligence from internal and external sources?
