Cyber Intelligence Suffers From ‘Snobby’ Isolationism, Focus on Rare Threats

  • Cyber-threat intelligence (CTI) teams face a host of challenges — a shortage of skilled workers and a lack of resources, for example — but two of the most serious hurdles are, in many ways, self-inflicted: A “snobby” culture that isolates groups and often focuses on the latest interesting threats rather than the actual dangers facing the business.
  • Focusing on zero-day exploits and nation-state adversaries is naturally alluring for CTI teams, but the more common threats facing their organizations are cybercriminal phishing attacks and workers’ reuse of passwords.
