Watch Now

Today’s threat landscape can be overwhelming for state and local security analysts and their teams. Collecting and analyzing vast amounts of information on potential threats often leads to data overload. Agency silos make it harder to exchange vital intelligence insights. And most analysts don’t have the proper time or resources to manually investigate potential indicators of a cyberattack. That leaves them open to risk and can even make them unaware that they’ve been breached.

The coronavirus pandemic has intensified all of those challenges and created unforeseen ones. The crisis environment has opened the door for new bad actors and new ransomware and malware attacks. Security teams are bombarded by alerts and unknown observables they’ve never seen before. Moving most of the workforce to remote access has made it harder than ever to assess and analyze potential threats.

An intelligence-led approach to security provides your team with a comprehensive understanding of the threats they face, and a better way to react and respond. Join us on June 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern for a rapid-fire discussion how your team can improve its intelligence approach.

In this 30-minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What security-led intelligence is, and how it can help you contextualize potential threats
  • How clear-cut, actionable intelligence and research allows you to quickly triage and process incoming information
  • How to prioritize your vulnerabilities and redirect your security analysis resources more efficiently
