Episode 27: Misconceptions of Threat Intelligence

How do we go from data to information, and from information to intelligence in the cyber world?

Who better to try to explain this than the former Director of the national communications and security agency in the Netherlands, Job Kuijpers, and his colleague and trusted advisor for Threat Intelligence, Piet Kerkhofs. After more than 15 years in the Dutch government's cyber program the two of them founded the cyber security company EYE, and in their conversation with Robby they share from their vast and hands-on experience working with threat intelligence.

In this episode, you’ll hear about the most common misconceptions about threat intelligence that they’ve come across, and how much and what should be automated in threat intelligence – and what shouldn’t.

They also discuss what’s required by an organisation buying/receiving threat intelligence, and how to evaluate if your organisation actually needs threat intelligence tools for its security work.
