There about 2,200 cybersecurity breaches each day, worldwide. If you want to stay on top of that, you should sign up for a threat intelligence feed.
A threat intelligence feed is a database for cyberattacks, updated daily or weekly or even hourly with the latest threats. This is an extremely helpful way to keep up on the latest trends, news, and stories on cybersecurity across the industry! And keeping your organization up-to-date with the latest developments in the threat landscape can mean the difference between a user reporting a phishing attack or falling prey to a malicious link.
Are you familiar with a newsfeed? If yes, then you’re most of the way to understanding what a threat intelligence feed is. Where a newsfeed is a constantly updated, chronological (i.e. new-stuff-at-the-top) list of news from various sources, a threat intelligence feed is that but specifically for cyberthreats.
Alright. I will. There are three types of threat intelligence feeds: tactical, operational, and strategic.
I’m glad you asked! These feeds work on a variety of methods.
Ok! Here’s a few to get you started:
Well, we at Hoxhunt do have a threat feed newsletter. It showcases the latest threats that have bypassed technical filters and were reported by Hoxhunt's human detection network of over a million users. Those reported threats are automatically analyzed and categorized for prioritization and SOC response by our unique machine learning model. These are the threats at the vanguard of the constantly-evolving threat landscape. You should sign up! And if you want more info — and a way to put that data to work — please check out our response platform. We'd love to hear from you!
