Parent Track


Companies face cyber threats of increased complexity. Adjusting to specific threat environment requires utilization of advanced cyber-defence measures like Cyber Threat Intelligence. CTI techniques can be used to evaluate the real-time information relevant to specific risk areas and enable CISOs to make critical decisions in containing and avoiding cyber-attacks. Integration of CTI into existing security operations can be a challenge but if done properly, it can provide greater network visibility and awareness of the threat landscape.  

This session will provide an in-depth discussion of cyber threat intelligence operating models and time-critical decision making.

Panel - Cyber Threat Intelligence Best Practices
Ammi Virk, Hexegic B.V.  • Aviram Zrahia, Juniper Networks • Mike Hart, FireEye

In some cases, more data and information does not necessarily result in more clarity. In this session we will discuss the difference between more information and real intelligence. We will hear about the successful implementations of Cyber Threat Intelligence. 

Contextualising Cyber Threat Intelligence
John Unsworth, Revak • Ammi Virk, Hexegic B.V. 

Cyber Threat Intelligence is a hot topic. So much so, that attacks are constantly in the news and most medium to larger companies / organisations will have had some level of consultancy or internal development of a response or strategy.
