Tech Spotlight - Humanizing Threat Intelligence presented at ThreatIntelligence 2016

by Chris Jacob,

Summary : While the rest of the cyber world keeps a collective eye towards machine learning, artificial intelligence, and total automation in attempt to reduce the involvement of people, we will explore the exact opposite. How can we leverage technology to better empower the human analyst? We will explore evolving threat intelligence processes from the traditional "observe, orient, decide, and act" (better known as the OODA Loop) to a more robust "battle rhythm" which follows a cognitive hierarchy of gathering data from raw signals, applying knowledge, and producing actionable intelligence, none of which is possible without human intuition.
