Getting started with a threat intelligence program doesn’t have to be costly or time consuming, with some automation anyone can jump start their own threat program. Today, we see a lot of enterprises heavily investing in a threat intelligence program to gain informational advantage over their adversaries (bad-actors) in other to prevent threats their organizations faces but we don’t see the same trend for small organizations. Traditionally, starting a threat intel program not only requires a team of experts but also the technology to produce the data but today, that is no longer the case. With a little coding knowledge, anyone can join the OpenThreat community and consolidate a list of OpenSource threat intel tools to collect intelligence and take automated actions to remediate the threat. During this talk, we will go over how we can exploit systems from a single threat intelligence.
