Strategic Threat Intelligence

Devising and constructing defences takes time, and cyber criminals are winning the war against businesses. In order to get ahead and prevent your organisation becoming the next victim, effective security planning must occur. Serious decisions, months even years ahead will impact a business’ defences, their productivity and financials. To ensure the correct decisions are made, senior stakeholders must be well informed regarding current and probable future threats.

Strategic Threat Intelligence empowers senior stakeholders by providing crucial intelligence regarding known threats, their tools, tactics and processes, and assessed future threats. It is this assessment of future threats that is fundamental to helping an organisation stay ahead. Today’s threats are rapidly evolving and will circumvent todays controls, tomorrow. It may take time to identify a security gap, acquire funds, go through procurement, install, calibrate and train staff. This journey can take well over a year, so knowing where threats are evolving months before they do is key. With Askari Blue’s Strategic Threat Intelligence we provide clients with that knowledge so they can stay ahead of their adversary.
