In a recently released Ponemon Institute report, "The Value of Threat Intelligence: Annual Study of North American & United Kingdom Companies," the importance of threat intelligence in achieving a strong cybersecurity posture is rated as very high at 85%, but only 41% of respondents felt that they are utilizing their threat intelligence effectively. The report reveals that security professionals believe threat intelligence is often too voluminous and/or complex to provide actionable insights. It also states that - despite security being a business priority - security professionals struggle in sharing essential threat data to the C-Suite and above. Findings also suggest security teams are not optimized to deliver on threat intelligence and they often lack experienced subject matter experts.
