About this event

When an organization incurs a network intrusion, an attempt to degrade its network capabilities, or other cyber incident against its systems and data, cyber intelligence can provide exquisite insight into the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) implemented as well as the motivations and capabilities of the perpetrator. Organizations looking to gain greater insight into the threat environment are now integrating cyber intelligence into their operations, from the strategic-minded executive leadership to the operational managers and the tactical, on-the-network cybersecurity personnel. Panelists will examine the best practices of cyber intelligence, and how organizations from the public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors can benefit.

Focus questions

– What does cyber intelligence “look like” within an organization, and how does it differ at the strategic, operational and tactical levels?
– What are the workforce skills and resources needed to operationalize cyber intelligence within an organization? 
– How can small- to mid-sized organizations take advantage of cyber intelligence capabilities with limited resources?
– What does meaningful information sharing between organizations look like to intelligence professionals, and how can organizations find access to information sharing opportunities?

About the lecture series 

The Cyber Intelligence Discussion Series, co-hosted by The Institute of World Politics (IWP) and the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA), will examine the emergent discipline of cyber intelligence as an integral component of organizational cybersecurity and how the public, private and academic sectors are fostering the development of this nascent field. The discussions, to be held each Thursday in October in recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), will include remarks by leading professionals from government, the private sector and academia. IWP and INSA encourage attendees to continue the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #cyberintel.
