Operationalizing Threat Intel 
by Brian Costello



There are many sources of cyber threat intelligence, and their quality varies dramatically. At a minimum, high quality threat intel must be:
• Continually updated
• Free of outdated information
• Derived from authentic sources

But quality is only the beginning. As with any tool, the real value of threat intel relies on how you use it. Attend this enlightening and practical talk on operationalizing cyber threat intel, and learn how to make the most of your intel resources.
