As with every aspect of information security, our challenge is one of balance. For example, often you’ll need to balance control with usability when implementing technologies to prevent security from negatively impacting the effectiveness of your organization.

In the case of how to access and apply threat intelligence, your two key concerns will be time and context. Here’s why these factors matter:

Time — New vulnerabilities, exploits, and malware emerge each day. Your aim is to know about these new threats to proactively defend your organization.

Context — The threats described above are numerous and ever changing; just gathering more data without relevant context will only serve to make the job of security harder.
