  1. Do you apply threat intelligence to customer security alerts as part of your process for vetting or determining if an alert should be escalated to security event status and action taken?

  2. Is intelligence manpower throughout the systems lifecycle (based upon projected demands) expected to be available, suitable, and sufficient throughout the programs expected lifecycle?

  3. Are existing or projected geospatial intelligence (and supporting infrastructure) expected to be available, suitable and sufficient throughout the programs lifecycle?

  4. Is intelligence adequately shared so that I&A accurately analyses and produces timely and useful threat information about terror targets and tactics to its customers?

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

  6. Who is responsible for implementing a threat intelligence program that integrates across your security technologies, teams, and executive cyber-Risk Decisions?

  7. Has your organization in the past year experienced a cyber Security Incident where threat intelligence played a significant role in detection and/or response?

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

  9. What challenges do the realm Hybrid Threats pose for the world of intelligence analysis and tradecraft, and how should intelligence departments adapt?

  10. What challenges does Hybrid Threats pose for the world of intelligence analysis and tradecraft, and how should intelligence departments adapt?

  • Integrate recent advances in Threat Intelligence and put Process Design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Threat Intelligence investments work better.

This Threat Intelligence All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
