Intelligence Driven Defense

It takes a culture shift to defend what matters most.

What is Intelligence Driven Defense®?


Organizations across the globe are being targeted by cyber threats. Attacks are becoming more frequent, severe, and sophisticated, and no industry is immune. Cyber adversaries are continuously evolving their operations and techniques. Are you?

An effective defense starts and ends with intelligence. Everyone has data, but if your technology, people and processes aren’t aligned to translate it into actionable intel, you’ll never outpace cyber threats!  To transform from a reactive strategy to a proactive – more mature cybersecurity posture – you need to shift how you use your intelligence. Tuned technology, skilled cyber analysts, and a proven analytic framework are key components to an Intelligence Driven Defense® strategy.

Intelligence Driven Defense® is a strategic methodology that will change how your organization tackles cybersecurity maturity. Are your technology investments capable of collecting the intelligence needed to proactively detect cyber-attacks? Is your team empowered to analyze the intelligence and mitigate cyber-threats?  Do you have a framework in place to guide analysis of intelligence left behind by attackers to identify persistent threat actors and even anticipate future attacks?

Stop reacting to incidents and start using your intel to proactively drive your defense! Leverage actionable intelligence to guide your every move, including purchasing technology, hiring personnel and developing processes and procedures. Every task, challenge, and decision you face will better align with your cybersecurity program objectives when made in the context of an Intelligence Driven Defense® strategy.
