Can threat intel actually defend you against future attacks?
Tim Holman’s answer is simple, although not surprising:
‘Most of the time, yes. But by far the best way is to take a pro-active approach, presume attackers are already on the inside and tailor your defences from the inside out.’
For effective treatment of the inevitable he recommends to invest in a ISMS:
‘No firm can ever defend against 100% of attacks, 100% of the time, but without a doubt you can create resilient systems and business processes that are 100% effective in restoring your firm to business-as-usual when the inevitable cyber attack happens.’
