ThreatConnect Research Finds Majority of Cybersecurity Leaders Say Threat Intelligence Programs Successfully Blocked Attacks and Prevented Breaches Last Year

ThreatConnect, Inc.®, provider of the industry’s only extensible,
intelligence-driven security platform, today released findings of a
survey, “Building a Threat Intelligence Program,” which reveals that
despite increasing cyber threats to organizations, those that have
threat intelligence programs in place are seeing their efforts to thwart
them paying off. Approximately 70 percent of cybersecurity decision
makers plan to spend more this year to address elevated risk to their
business.

The study focuses on how organizations are leveraging threat
intelligence to combat increasing cyber threats. More than half of all
organizations with threat intelligence programs surveyed say their
organizations’ programs have prevented phishing attacks (67 percent),
ransomware attacks (58 percent), breach of customer data (60 percent),
insider threats (57 percent), business email compromise (55 percent),
and supply chain attacks (49 percent). Those with more mature programs
report having a threat intelligence platform in place and getting more
benefits from their programs.

“Because cybersecurity threats are an increasing risk, it is ever more
important that organizations adopt an intelligence-led approach to their
security operations. Organizations leveraging threat intelligence
programmatically with automation and orchestration enhance their
abilities to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging threat actors,
attack patterns and vulnerabilities relevant to them,” said Andy
Pendergast, co-author of the Diamond Model of Intrusion Analysis and
co-founder of ThreatConnect. “And, the survey results underscore this
need across organizations of all maturity levels.”

Key Findings Include:

“Our mission is to provide cybersecurity leaders the tools, visibility,
and understanding they need to protect themselves, their data and the
business from threat actors,” Pendergast said. “The ThreatConnect
Platform and our integrations help organizations both large and small
maximize the effectiveness of their existing tools, better manage risks,
and take action on threats, ultimately improving their overall security
posture now and for the future as threats and adversaries continue to
evolve.”
