Applying Threat Intelligence to Improve Security Awareness Programs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Security awareness programs should improve user security-related behaviors by providing information. However, as experience shows, most awareness programs are not very effective against actual attacks. Threat intelligence is the process of understanding potential and ongoing attacks to more effectively prevent, detect and react to those attacks. By applying threat intelligence to security awareness programs, programs become immediately relevant and better engage employees. This presentation discusses what makes for good threat intelligence and security awareness programs individually, and how to combine them. Case studies, including thwarting the Syrian Electronic Army, are discussed. 

Learning Objectives
Understand how to create an effective security awareness program.
Understand the threat intelligence process and information to expect from an effective program.

Know how to incorporate threat intelligence into security awareness programs to make the programs more engaging and more effective.
