‘What’s the difference between cyber threat intelligence and threat hunting?’
You might ask. Here’s the answer from Microminder’s cyber security experts:
|Cyber threat intelligence||Cyber threat hunting|
|Cyber threat intelligence involves studying a potential threat or malicious actor’s attack patterns to anticipate and circumvent a possible attack. It entails procuring, processing and analysing information updates about emerging or existing hazards to assets. The cyber threat intelligence systems typically use some sort of threat intelligence feed acquired from SIEM threat intelligence platforms, including IP addresses, URLs and domain names linked to suspicious activity. This feed forms a type of cybersecurity intelligence threat list. With this list, companies can reconfigure their existing firewall, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), to react to incoming or outgoing traffic from their network to these blocklisted IP addresses.||On the other hand, threat hunting in cybersecurity is the proactive approach to searching and identifying cyber threats, intruder symptoms and malicious presences that operate undetected in your organisation’s network. Cybersecurity threat hunting involves advanced monitoring of network systems using the indicators of compromise (IOC) retrieved from threat intelligence systems or crowdsourced data. Part of the threat hunting process is deep log analysis and management, which connects multiple sources that can potentially indicate a compromise in a network’s integrity. These sources are then sifted with advanced data analysis and machine learning techniques to recover real stealth threats. Once vetted, a solution unique to your network’s need is deployed to mitigate said threats.|
