RSA Threat Intelligence


In the context of the current threat environment, participants learn ways to detect and correlate data for better threat analysis; reduce breach exposure time and break the cyber kill chain; and manage current and future threats. As participants progress through the program, their perceptions of threats will evolve, and they will receive instruction on the role of threat intelligence in security systems that are evolving along with the threat environment.

Get to participate in hands-on and table-top exercises to practice strategies for analyzing attacks and mitigating their effects, and for applying intelligence-driven security practices in their own organizations.

  • List best practices for planning advanced defenses
  • Describe the cyber kill chain
  • Provide examples of cyber kill chain intervention
  • Compare traditional threats and Advanced Persistent Threats
  • Find and use sources of threat intelligence
  • Perform threat modeling of high-value assets and high-value adversaries
  • Gather and analyze threat intelligence
  • Manage the threat lifecycle
Who should attend
