What is threat intelligence? - Part 1

In this smart episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Rob Gresham formerly of McAfee joins me to explain threat intelligence.

Rob (@rwgresham) previously served as a practice lead in McAfee's security operations. I had the opportunity to meet Rob in person. He is deeply involved in the many things information security related in South Carolina. Including the National Guard and Palmetto Cyber Defense Competition. Threat intelligence is a topic he thoroughly enjoys discussing. Which is why this topic will be a two parter.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is threat intelligence
  • How threat intelligence is useful
  • What are the benefits of threat intelligence
  • What needs to be done before threat intelligence
