Tech Time: Cyberthreat intelligence and your credit union

first_img continue reading » Credit union leaders understand that the better they know members and their behavior, the better the credit union can provide products and services that meet members’ needs. If CUs understand members well enough, they can even anticipate future needs. Within the realm of cybersecurity, this same wisdom holds. The better we understand the tactics, techniques and procedures used by the bad guys, the better we can proactively defend against them. One aspect of building this proactive defense involves the use of cyberthreat intelligence.Defining Cyberthreat IntelligenceCyberthreat intelligence is “actionable knowledge about cyber adversaries gained through careful review and analysis of threat data and behaviors, allowing the organization to better recognize and remediate cyber-related risks.” While a bit of a mouthful and somewhat “geek-speak,” the concept of cyberthreat intelligence is comparable to how credit unions use MCIF packages to turn reams of member data into actionable information (intelligence) for marketing campaigns. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img
