In the world of cyber security, all aspects of the threat landscape are constantly growing, changing, and becoming more complex. teams constantly are bombarded with overwhelming amounts of data that make it difficult to decide what needs attention. The key to dealing effectively with threats and overwhelming data comes down to the quality of actionable threat intelligence produced by the Analysts overseen by the Threat Intelligence Director.

Collecting and aggregating data must not be an end in itself – the data need to mean something that will lead to prevention and mitigation of threats. This means that, in order to mitigate risks effectively, the Threat Intelligence Director must have analytical skills coupled with the ability to discern the difference between the important and the irrelevant.

This intelligence-driven approach to security, which provides the key data and capabilities exactly when and where they are needed to maximize resource effectiveness and minimize the damages incurred, is dependent upon the Director’s knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and leadership to separate the noise from the important decision-making information.
