Gathering and implementing threat intelligence is overwhelming, but it can be done in an extremely effective and uncomplicated way. John Bambenek, ThreatSTOP's VP of Security and Research, will talk about the threat landscape's new reality, where attackers are financially motivated pros, visibility into threats is limited and the attack surface has grown exponentially. (There have been 96M malware variants since 2016) With this, utilizing threat intelligence the right way (combined with modern packet capture) is essential to IT security and compliance.
