Threat Intel Directors

Threat Intel

A core focus of the ACSC since its founding. The ACSC’s work in this space has evolved over time and in response to the development of the commercial threat intel market. Having a Threat-focused security program is essential to applying resources to the right spot. 

Threat Intel Directors Network

A director-level network plays a major role in the 2021 ACSC programming. The network’s focus and output addresses organizations with fewer resources, and those with greater capacity. Three key focuses: 

  1. Effective practices for building, managing, and communicating threat intelligence
  2. Effective balance of internal and external resources; use of vendors and the marketplace
  3. Developing a fully integrated strategy across key functions and technologies

Three Challenge Topics:

  1. Internal Management & Continuous Impact: e.g., five steps for building a Threat Intel Program, models for weekly CISO briefings 
  2. Advanced Techniques and Models: e.g., applying MITRE ATT&CK to drive Threat  Hunt, effective dashboards, identifying data sources and innovative AI solutions
  3. Tooling/Vendors - Threat Intel Sources, 3rd Party Risk, Automation: e.g., 3rd Party Security and Risk Management, peer sharing of Threat Intel vendor deployments 

The Network is chaired by:

  • Lauren Jones, MassMutual
  • Paul Goodwin, Liberty Mutual
